with Denzel Washington

Feel free to come and share your own personal insights sometime; the Saturday Night Video and Discussions here in Austin, Texas are a lot of fun and fascinating. (They're free, too.) Here are the questions the group came up with, based on the personal growth themes in the movie:


  1. What does prejudice cause me to miss out on?
  2. How has telling my truth made me strong?
  3. What manifestations of racism have I experienced?
  4. How did the reactions in my youth form me?
  5. What have been the big romances in my life?
  6. What have I finally understood about what my parents went through?
  7. How have I been civilly disobedient?
  8. How do I feel about debating?
