Some may say that it's IMPOSSIBLE to learn a little history in under 5 minutes but, in 4.5 minutes, Ella Coleman taught me a lot. She was very descriptive and told me about things that were so... different, that I went home and googled a few of them. Overall, I advise you to watching the un-cut footage because you get to see more of Mrs. Coleman's personality. I had a great time interviewing her and learning that there really is "Nothing new under the sun"...
