The Education of Shelby Knox

After hearing Shelby Knox speak at NCCWSL last week (post on that conference coming soon), I knew that I had to see the documentary about her life. She fought the school board in Lubbock, TX in an effort to institute sex education in the public schools.

Here’s the trailer:

Wow. If I thought she was great when I heard her speak, this documentary makes her seem unstoppable! Her energy and drive is inspirational and I hope that I can work this passionately for a cause some day. Shelby Knox is truly a role model.

I highly recommend this film to all young would-be-activists as well as anyone who believes that this country’s youth don’t care about politics.
