"Trouble Behind" was a documentary made in 1990 or '91 and tackled the subject of modern American racism. The town most prominently featured in the movie was Corbin, Kentucky. Several prominent Corbinites were interviewed in the movie.

I heard awhile back that this movie was still being shown in college classrooms(sociology) all over the country. Did anyone see the movie? I know some Corbin football players were featured, along with some city leaders, and a local historian. It painted the town in a very "dark" light.

I saw it with my eyes. I question any movie that portrays Smokey as a Corbin Leader.

I saw this movie and have a copy somewhere. Your right ole Smokey was dressed up with a suit jacket on looking fine. A real one sided view of the Corbin area to me.

My view on the racism issue is very simple. Yes, racist views run very deep in this town. I was talking to a very well known, respected man in this town awhile back. He is a neighbor. I like the man a lot; always been very nice to me. In a conversation this past summer, this older gentleman used the "N" word twice. Racism runs deep in this town, folks. Don't kid yourself. However, it probably is just about as bad in surrounding areas as
well.

I've heard about this documentary and I have been wanting to see it for years. I just can't find it, though.

Beth, try to Laurel County Public Library. They did have copies at both the Corbin and London branch. It should be in the "educational" section of DVDs.:) Hope that helps.
