Thanks so much for sharing these fascinating pieces. So glad that you made these available to us, wish I had watched before I read the novel. Mrs. Turner could literally be Polly's voice.

The most incredible thing to me was keeping in mind a 21st century white man could write so poignantly about this period in history, told totally from black slaves' perspective. I will not forget The Healing with all its wonderful characters, and can honestly say it evoked more emotions in me than the truly moving story in The Help.
