Reviews
"All six videos feature well-selected historical footage, lively action, and, above all, engaging heroes who have much to show to young people. This series demonstrates to teenage viewers that individuals can make a difference and there are ways they, too, can get involved in their own communities."
MultiCultural Review

"Visually dynamic and deeply personal in approach. Hart and Côté avoid ponderous docu-speak pacing...Instead, they concentrate on getting as close and personal with a subject's psyche as the camera will permit. The results are often moving."
The (Montreal) Gazette
