"Extraordinary film...Poignant"
—Rhonda Stewart, Boston Globe

"Recommended. [Kandice's] experience[s] of what it is like being a black student in a white community are told honestly and candidly. More than a story of busing and race it is a personal story worth watching."
Educational Media Reviews Online

"...a understated, compelling, deeply human film...Explores our deepest and still most vexing questions about race, belonging and identity...a wonderful teaching tool."
—Susan E. Eaton, Author of The Other Boston Busing Story

"Issues of race, busing, and segregation in America's schools are seldom addressed in such a straightforward and honest manner...This powerful and moving portrait of an African-American teenager is a wake-up call and must be seen by teenagers and anyone who works with them."
—Maura Minsky, Scenarios USA (a youth filmmaking organization)

"...a rich source of ideas for bringing some difficult discussions to the excellent professional development source for our work on anti-bias teaching and learning we strive to promote high standards and achievement for all students."
—Dr. Alan Oliff, Superintendent, Weston Public Schools

"Juxtaposing discussions with her classmates about the impact of affirmative action against conversations with her family about the murder of her grandfather, an integration activist and one of the founders of METCO, this film documents the distances—socially, culturally, and academically—between the educational opportunities available to children in America. Kandice gives voice to what many of our students would say to us if they could."
—Kendra Winner, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"A powerful depiction of what a Boston student enrolled in the METCO program endures on a daily basis to succeed."
—Hank Van Putten, Principal, Oak Hill Middle School, Newton, MA

"...a compelling and provocative look at the continuing struggle for a truly desegregated educational system more than fifty years after Brown vs. the Board of Education."
—Fred Murphy, History teacher, Frederick Douglass Academy high school, NYC
