    As Ruby Dee talks about many areas of these two women she shared with Mary J and Angela

    I haven't seen it but I saw some pre-views of it.

    I'm not sure how I'll respond to Mary J as Betty Shabazz, though.

    I just can't feel that one yet.

    she did well , I watch it and felt the sisterhood of these two women , I saw the Betty in her eyes in some parts
    at the end when she faced that fire ......Mary did well ....but i think it could have been played by someone else

    She played her roll well
    loved the moral of the film to keep their husbands dreams alive

    Hey rich, how you doing and welcome back..

    i just watched it and i really enjoyed it.. i think mary and angela did a very good job portraying betty and coretta. i don't think anyone would've done a better job than they did.

    i really loved how both these woman bonded. i loved their friendship and how they helped each other thru some terrible times. there couldn't've been no better friends like these two.. let me not forget Medgar Evers wife. I'm glad they put her in the movie.

    what really disturbed me was betty's grandson's trouble upbringing with his mom. of course, his mom has been going thru some hell trying to deal with her father being assassinated in front of her and i don't blame her but at some point of time, i would've thought she'd get some help.

    overall, i like the movie and i will get the dvd.

    I agree , it was sad that she had to deal with it without any help , yes it was really nice to see Evers wife
    these sistahs bonded in sisterhood for their husbands fight and Mrs KING paid her life to see Martin's
    birthday become a holiday............We should never work on that day but so many of us do
    I will never work on his birthday

    I even like when she shared the tapes of Martin's with Betty and how she supported the tapes to never
    be seen to blemish his image.......Great Movie
