Slavery and civil war.

The U.S. civil war started in 1861 and ended in 1865.
Jim Crow laws followed.
It then took a hundred years to get theCivil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965
for colored people to have the same rights. Justice takes time...
Anyway, you can watch this FYI (for your information)

The Square Palme d'Or 2017

Holiday time well spent. Hope you can afford a flick.
Went to see The Square. Here's the official trailer of that movie
running in #Reims this week at the Opera. 
Lucky to have an ...arthouse cinema here in Reims.                                                                  Just learnt a new word! Hope to talk about it with you (the movie is subtitled!) back to school.
Worth a good mark/grade I'm sure. And by the way, where are those comments anyway?

CONSENT : Easily understandable with tea instead.

I thought in the midst of the Harvey Weinstein story, posting this video could be appropriate. 
(Voc. brackets: Journalists tend to call what they are working on 'a story'. Judicial courts,deal with cases. In politics, they refer to narratives or story-telling.)

Sure, everybody likes a good story. Here is one.
