Whoopi Goldberg, The Long Walk Home

Before The Help's candy-coated the issues of civil rights in the South, this gripping drama gave us a gritty and honest portrayal of the social unrest that crept into a small Alabama town. Goldberg plays a maid, Odessa, who not only puts food on the table for her impressionable young daughter, but sets an example for justice that we know will change the girl's life forever.
