All the Way Home is a superb film about neighborhood racial integration from the 1950s. Addressing the fears, concerns, and tension about integration for white neighborhoods, the film treats these subjects with a surprising honesty. The elements of social ostracizing and traditionalist pressures are revealed for the painful and damaging forces they have always been. For example, the man who sells his home to a “negro” is punished by his neighbors who fear (rightly to this day, unfortunately) that their property value will be negatively effected – not to mention issues of safety. This is an important film since many of these issues are still as painfully present as they were in the 1950s. All the Way Home is a must have piece of Civil Rights history.
