Before Malcolm X. Before Martin Luther King, Jr. Vernon Johns took the first step on the long road to freedom.

Oscar® nominee James Earl Jones stars as controversial pastor Vernon Johns, one of the earliest voices of civil rights. Incensed at the racial injustice that pervaded the South, he was determined to fight for equality for all African Americans.

His refusal to accept segregation incited anger amongst local law enment and caused his family to fear for their lives. Johns held strong to his belief and encouraged his congregation to join him. But, the church council deemed a troublemaker and he was voted out as pastor...only to be replaced by future civil rights leader, Martin Luther King, Jr.
