The Long Shadow is a masterful film that captures the disturbing story of the enduring human cost of prejudice and ignorance in the United States that continues to cast a long shadow over our national identity and values and ultimately, our celebrated democracy.

It presents a startling, unrecognized history that provides much needed context when considering the major issues impacting black/white relations in the United States today and the untold stories of how America — guided by the South's powerful political influence — steadily, deliberately and at times secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture and economy.

The past makes the present inevitable! Of all the divisions in America, none is as insidious and destructive as racism.

William Faulkner once said, "The past is never dead. The past is not even past," and this echoes one scholar's warning in the film: "We're still fighting the Civil War, and the South is winning." Anti-black racism has survived like "an infection", rigging the game against African-Americans and denying them full access to the American dream. By telling individual storiesof free enterprising blacks in Canada; of a modern, racially motivated shootingthe filmmakers movingly personalize the costs and the stakes of our continued inaction.

It sounds like a really good film. Pity the local PBS is in bed with the (As the Saint from the novels often said.) UnGodly. Their backers wouldn't allow it to be shown because it would differ from their worldview. I truly wish that I could afford to move far away.
