“You Belong To Me was screened to a diverse audience who not only asked great questions but brought up stories of prejudice – both subtle and not so subtle – of their own lives.”
I would be scheduled to screen You Belong To Me at Montgomery Count Community College on the same day that former President, Bill Clinton made an appearance! What a great opportunity for students!
It is a beautiful campus with first rate facilities and Director of Cultural Affairs, Brent Woods, met me in the green room where we were joined by Dr. Tim Connolly, Associate Professor, for a very thoughtfully provided lunch. The three of us had a discussion about race and politics – two subjects most people shy away from!

It is rewarding to hear people compliment the documentary, but even more exciting to know that Dr. Connolly intends to get a copy of the documentary for the College’s library. I mentioned to him that we have a companion workbook written by Dr. Ruth Thompson-Miller who is an interviewee in the documentary.
What a great experience!
