Description

In the mid-1960s, Lowndes County, Alabama had zero registered Black voters despite an 80% Black population. Through first person accounts and searing archival footage, this documentary chronicles the citizens' movement and young Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizers led by Stokely Carmichael who risked their lives for Black voting rights.
