The movie Freedom Writers directed by Richard LaGravenese, is based on a true story about racism that occurred between Caucasians and negros in 1994 in California. The teacher, Erin Grunwell, enters high school to start her first English teaching job. She notices lots of discrimination happening between students and even as far as seeing people killing each other because of their skin color. The students don’t like her because she is white and they think she is racist like other white people. She tries to make peace and to help students to learn about how to graduate with high marks and teach them that people’s behavior are not all the same. Erin works hard to make money and pay for the resources provided to teach properly. The students finally decide to open up to Erin and have her as the teacher for the rest of high school, and the students become best friends. In conclusion, this movie shows that no matter what your skin color is, we are all human, and we need to respect and care for each other, as well as learning how to be tolerant.
