I have been nursing a cold for a week, so I could not get out to the movies. There was nothing I really wanted to see anyway. But, having way too much time at home, I caught a film on HBO which I never in a million years would have thought I would like.

It is basically a civil rights musical. John Travolta can pull off a nice drag. One thing I liked about the film is, it can be used to introduce the civil rights movement in a way which will spark discussion. Social studies is always a challenge to teach, so whenever a fun film comes along to help teach the subject, I say use it.
