The Long Walk To Freedom

From the award-winning producer of A DREAM IN HANOI and BOYS WILL BE MEN comes this 30-minute documentary about how 12 ordinary people, from very different backgrounds, came to accomplish extraordinary deeds; deeds which changed the face of the nation. Together with tens of thousands of other Americans, they joined the Civil Rights movement to protest racial inequality, segregation, and discrimination in the 1960s.

THE LONG WALK TO FREEDOM demonstrates to today's young people that the struggle for civil rights, justice, and equality is indeed a 'long walk' - an ongoing challenge requiring the participation of successive generations. And it illustrates how ordinary individuals can become involved in social change.
