Yousuf 1 Sarah Yousuf General Psychology- 81003 25 November 2019 The movie “Lee Daniels The Butler,” provided a detailed perspective into what America looked like during the Civil Rights era. The most memorable scene in the film for me was when the college students did not budge from the“whites only” section of the restaurant. Despite the fact that the colored section was just a few feet away, the white people felt it be a violation of their rights with the colored people in “their” section. The scene stuck with me because it made me realize that things that seem insignificant can impact so greatly on people's perception of events.

I think people automatically would think this scene is more heartbreaking or emotional than the others in the film because it has to do with a young child.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
