Not in Our Town (Reacting to a Video)

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people. Martin Luther King, Jr.

After watching the video, comment on how the people of Billings, Montana embraced the meaning of King's words. What did they do? Do you think their actions were courageous? Why?
