Briars in the Cotton Patch (DVD)
Outstanding documentary, directed by Faith Fuller, daughter of Millard and Linda Fuller who are founders of Habitat for Humanity. First released in 2002, and updated for this 10th Anniversary Edition, covers each of the key development phases of Koinonia from its establishment in 1942 through several critical periods of evolution, all of which are true to the original mission of the organization.
An excellent resource for classroom use in civil rights/human rights education. Reveals the connections involving Morris Dees (SPLC), Clarence Jordan (Founder), community relations with Americus (GA), and Jimmy Carter (US President and neighbor to Koinonia in nearby Plains (GA).
This DVD is a must-watch for anyone committed to fully understanding the state of civil rights from 1975 to present day. Every school should have one. The five-star rating fails to convey the appreciation this DVD production merits.
