I do think they were close. Kids have said it numerous times.
Something thats also important to note is the narrator of the film is ruby dee who was close with both families. Her husband was the only person who spoke at both martin and malcoms funerals.

tons of pics with both women in it together hugging and kissing.

I actually had no idea that Betty and Coretta had a close friendship so this was news to me.

i wonder how accurate that was. then they had medgar ever's wife in there too (or something like that)
I personally think it's exaggerated. Much like the exaggeration that Martin and Malcolm were enemies. Those were smaller circles back then.

yep, i can think of at least one youtube video where malcolm is speaking positively about martin
but there are sides to Malcolm and Martin that people rarely see because history has chosen to portray them as they see fit
Think of it this way....the government/major corporations had a vested interest in destroying both movements. It's easy to portray the both of them as polar opposites when it was clear they both had one common goal.

To explain in a way today's person can understand, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Anniston probably don't think about each other as much as the media seems to think they do. But it's great to sell magazines and drive gossip tv shows.

it makes sense that they would be friends...how many other women could TRULY understand their lives?

i don't doubt they were friends, but enough to make a movie out of? i'm skeptical

I'm with you. Of course they communicated. I don't think they brought each other cookies. Or maybe my definition of friendship is different than most.
