I watched on TV May 26. Was really touched by the "trip down memory lane". Paul Simon was and is so courageous as are all those who stand up to racism, sexism and any other "ism" that denies basic rights of equality to all. This program is a tribute to the value and effectiveness of art and artists in so many venues, film included and how very important it is for all of us to continue!
