Democratic politics lies in what one does rather than in what one receives or is entitled to. Young men and women became massively involved in the fight against racism and for civil rights and for a new definition of citizenship. This stressed socialization based on plural belongings, the promotion of sociocultural integration in the suburbs, and the mobilization against police brutality and judicial discrimination. This chapter demonstrates how the film La Marche presents the youths' story as a troubled relationship with home and the march as political praxis and a metaphor for homecoming. Increasing police brutality and repression by private citizens culminated in the assassination of hundreds of immigrants. La Marche offers a visual history that seeks to recover the liveliness of a multidimensional world by reconstructing the way historical people witnessed, understood, experienced, and sensed the past.
