The passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 represented not the culmination of the Civil Rights Movement, but the beginning of a new, crucial chapter. Nowhere was this next battle better epitomized than in Lowndes County, Alabama, a rural, impoverished county with a vicious history of racist terrorism. In a county that was 80 percent Black but had zero Black voters, laws were just paper without power. This isn’t a story of hope but of action. Through first person accounts and searing archival footage, Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power tells the story of the local movement and young Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizers who fought not just for voting rights, but for Black Power in Lowndes County. 2022, USA, 90 minutes

Information on a filmmaker and community discussion and the Community Partners for this film will be posted soon.

“The power of the collective, more so than any individuals, is the focus here. The film is anchored with the arresting faces of Lowndes locals and Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee organizers, who recall a range of stirring details — from setting up camp in a house with no running water to internal debates over the term ‘Black power.’” (NYT Critic’s Pick) – The New York Times

“We hear from the well-known figures — Stokely Carmichael, Fannie Lou Hamer, John Lewis and King — of course, but what Pollard and Gandbhir do best with “Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power” is offer a view of what the fight for Black power in the Alabama county really looked like. It’s a powerful method of historiography that refuses the erasure of everyday people, of all those figures who stood in opposition to this fight, of those who were on the front lines at every moment but erased from the histories that they helped to shape.” – L.A. Times

“Unlike other political documentaries, “Lowndes County” isn’t afraid to end on a bleak, truthful note. One that challenges our modern perception of what is better and what is merely different. It is, quite simply, one of the best documentaries of the year.” [A] – The Playlist

“Accessible, passionate, and motivated by the principle of community that led to the Black Power movement. It is not concerned with name-dropping and defining leaders; instead, it is vehemently empowered by a dogmatic appreciation for collective grassroots activism.” – rogerebert.com

“Many fraught topics that have made headlines within the past two years — voter suppression, election fraud, police brutality, Black Lives Matter, gun control, to name a few — all seem like manifestations of issues more than a half-century old.” – The Wrap

O jogo móvel tem vindo a crescer há vários anos. Naturalmente, os melhores casinos online também reagem à tendência e fornecem-lhe várias aplicações ou websites móveis. Nesta página, dedicamo-nos especificamente às últimas e mais populares opções de jogos móveis que são oferecidas no mundo dos casinos em linha. No teste encontrará toda a informação sobre aplicações para dispositivos Android e iOS, assim como websites móveis.
Cada casino móvel Português tem a sua própria forma de "fornecer" aos jogadores slots móveis e clássicos. Alguns dependem de aplicações especiais para smartphones Android, bem como para iPhones ou mesmo iPads. Geralmente, os pequenos programas funcionam nos telemóveis correspondentes, mas também é maravilhoso jogar em movimento com um tablet.
Outras empresas, contudo, juram pelos sites da HMTL5. Este é, por assim dizer, o casino original com quase todo o portfólio em forma comprimida. Ambas as variantes têm vantagens, pelo que no final terá de decidir por si próprio qual a solução que melhor se adapta a si e às suas necessidades. HTML5 é sempre adequado se utilizar um smartphone ou tablet com sistemas que não os mencionados - Windows, por exemplo. Para este software, muito poucos casinos online desenvolveram até agora aplicações especiais. Assim, a coisa mais fácil a fazer é chamar o URL do casino e depois beneficiar da oferta de jogos móveis directamente no browser.
Em princípio, isto deve funcionar sempre sem problemas nos dispositivos actuais. O desempenho na área dos jogos móveis está a melhorar visivelmente, de modo que esta opção de jogo dificilmente é inferior à do casino com navegador no PC de casa. É claro que não se pode jogar apenas gratuitamente em movimento. Os sites HTML5 são, no final, algo como a forma pequena do grande casino. Isto significa que iniciar sessão e jogar para obter ganhos reais é tão fácil na estrada como em casa, no ambiente de trabalho. A única diferença é, evidentemente, a resolução mais pequena, e é aqui que o trigo é separado do joio.
