Worthwhile Viewing: The Barber of Birmingham

Mr. James Armstrong sitting in his barber’s chair.

The 2012 Academy Award nominated film for documentary short, The Barber of Birmingham, can be viewed on-line at PBS until September 9, 2012. I watched it today. I first learned of the film when I heard Michel Martin interviewing co-director Robyn Fryday on “Tell Me More” last week. The POV website for the film offers a host of useful links. This film would be worthy to consider using for a screening party for a community group or for using with students in light of the upcoming Presidential election.
