  1. It’s good that others elsewhere will have an opportunity to learn about the trials and tribulations of Bermuda’s “black” people prior to this historical event. Sad but true, many had endured until uniting for changes… changes that have benefitted not just the “blacks” but everyone on this Island, all accomplished without violence. Mr. Kingsley Tweed had been influential but he had been, “a spoke in the wheel” as were many others that you can / will learn about once viewing this Civil Rights Documentary.
