A dramatic story of racism and empowerment, inspired by the experience of Rhonda Gordon and her daughter, Angela. A bus ride changed their lives in a way no one could have foreseen. When three boys harass Rhonda and Angela, Rhonda finds the courage and determination to take a unique and powerful stand against ignorance and prejudice. A great discussion starter on racism and its impact. (The video is 24 min. 40 sec. and contains a special presentation at the end.)
