Bill Moyers: 

The film blows the possibility for true drama here — the drama of history happening right before our eyes. Nonetheless, go see it. You’ll be reminded of what happens when courage on the street is met by a moral response from power.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:15 Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers: 

The nation was electrified. Watching on television, Martin Luther King wept.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:14 Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers: 

Johnson was more animated and passionate than I have ever seen him, and I was standing very near him, off to the right.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:14 Bill Moyers
3:13
Bill Moyers: 

In fact, he made that speech in the House of Representatives where the State of Union speeches are delivered.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:13 Bill Moyers
3:12
Bill Moyers: 

Also, the director has a limpid President speaking in the Senate chamber to a normal number of Senators.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:12 Bill Moyers
3:12
Bill Moyers: 

and within days he made his own famous “We Shall Overcome” speech that transformed the political environment. By the way, this is one of the weakest moments in the film.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:12 Bill Moyers
3:11
Bill Moyers: 

He wouldn’t have welcome the bloodshed at the bridge, but when it happened he knew the time had come …

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:11 Bill Moyers
3:10
Bill Moyers: 

He asked King to give him more time to bring a few Southern “moderates” over to the cause, but after King made the case that blacks had waited too long for too little, Johnson told him: “Then go out there and make it possible for me to do the right thing.”

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:10 Bill Moyers
3:09
Bill Moyers: 

As he said to Martin Luther King, “You’re an activist; I’m a politician” and politicians read the tide of events better than most of read the hands on our watch; he knew he needed public sentiment to gather sufficient momentum before he could introduce and quickly pass a voting rights bill.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:09 Bill Moyers
3:08
Bill Moyers: 

He was concerned that coming so soon after the Civil Rights Act of l964 there was little political will in Congress to follow up so soon with voting rights legislation.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:08 Bill Moyers
3:07
Bill Moyers: 

casting the President as opposed to the Selma March, which the director does, is an exaggeration.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:07 Bill Moyers
3:07
Bill Moyers: 

Then …

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:07 Bill Moyers
3:07
Bill Moyers: 

And even if you want to think of Lyndon Johnson as vile enough to want to do that, he was way, way too smart to hand Hoover the means of blackmailing him.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:07 Bill Moyers
3:06
Bill Moyers: 

Some of our most scrupulous historians have denounced that one

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:06 Bill Moyers
3:05
Bill Moyers: 

…. suggesting the very opposite of the truth,in this case, that the President was behind J. Edgar Hoover’s sending the “sex tape” to Coretta King.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:05 Bill Moyers
3:05
Bill Moyers: 

As for LBJ: There’s one egregious and outrageous portrayal that is the worst kind of creative license ….

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:05 Bill Moyers
3:04
Bill Moyers: 

To the courage and fear of those black people who put themselves on the line for freedom’s sake; the ambivalence in Martin Luther King facing the inevitability of leadership and the constant threat of death.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:04 Bill Moyers
3:03
Bill Moyers: 

There are some beautiful and poignant moments in the film that take us closer to the truth than anything I’ve seen to date — to the cruelty visited upon black people by everyday whites and armed authorities.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:03 Bill Moyers

Tuesday January 13, 2015 3:03 Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers: 

How to save democracy? As Lewis himself says, only a determined people can do that …

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:55 Bill Moyers
2:55
Bill Moyers: 

But now the voices of the poor and working classes are silenced by the unfair advantage the John Roberts’ and the Mitch McConnells and their allies have given those who bankroll our politicians.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:55 Bill Moyers
2:54
Bill Moyers: 

… He reminds us that the reason limits were placed on campaign contributions was to protect the integrity of the vote in in this country, so that no one individual or corporation would have the power to override the public will or dictate the outcome of elections.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:54 Bill Moyers
2:53
Bill Moyers: 

Listen, no one says it better than John Lewis, who was almost killed in that Selma march across the Pettus Bridge in l965 but survived to serve 28 years in Congress, where he remains today.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:53 Bill Moyers
2:52
Bill Moyers: 

And hammer, hammer away, at every level.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:52 Bill Moyers
2:51
Bill Moyers: 

But we have to keep our goals clear — corporations are not people, money is not speech.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:51 Bill Moyers
2:51
Bill Moyers: 

But it’s all over unless there’s a broad and sustained movement to take on the monied interests. It’s very, very hard to imagine making this happen, in no small part because the issues of money in politics are technical.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:51 Bill Moyers

He could absolutely do the right thing at the right time — the reassuring grace, if you will, when he was thrust into the White House after Kennedy’s assassination, the Civil Rights Act of l964, the Voting Rights Act of l965 …

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:35 Bill Moyers

Bill Moyers: 

He had a passion for power but suffered violent dissent in the ranks of his own personality.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:34 Bill Moyers
2:34
Bill Moyers: 

He was at times proud, sensitive, impulsive, flambuoyant, sentimental, bold, magnanimous, and graceful (the best dancer in the White House since George Washington); at times temperamental, paranoid, ill of spirit, vulgar.

Tuesday January 13, 2015 2:34 Bill Moyers

He had an animal sense of weakness in other men — he wanted to know what you loved and what you feared and once he knew, he came after you.

Roberts’ great conceit and it’s one shared by other conservative members of the court, including Clarence Thomas who keeps trying to kick over the ladder by which he himself was hoisted to prominence — is that racism is no longer the problem it once was.
