Dear friends and neighbors,

“It’s up to you to talk to your brothers and your sisters and persuade them that they have a responsibility. We’ve assumed ours for over four hundred years and we’re tired of this kind of stuff now. We’re not going to suffer patiently anymore.”
-Senator Ernie Chambers, 1966

The iconic clip of Senator Chambers speaking about racial injustice as he barbers in North Omaha, in the Oscar-nominated 1966 documentary A Time for Burning, has gone viral over the last few days. It’s been shared hundreds of thousands of times on Twitter by famous writers and producers and professors all over the world, including Chuck D of Public Enemy, actress Yvette Nicole Brown, and Jarrett Hill of NBC.

Film Streams currently has A Time For Burning available to stream for free online. If you haven’t seen this film, watch it soon with your family. Its message is important, because until we acknowledge and understand our history, we will continue to repeat it.

As always, please let me know if I can be of any more assistance. Email is the best way to get in touch with me, at mhunt@leg.ne.gov.

Many thanks,
Meg
