The Uplifting True Story!
Disney presents a truly inspiring motion picture that accurately captures one of the most historically significant events in the struggle for civil rights!
In 1965, during the turbulent early days of the right-to-vote movement, a young Alabama schoolgirl (Jurnee Smollett - Eve's Bayou, Jack) is inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. (Clifton Powell - Deep Rising, Why Do Fools Fall In Love) to resist the degradation that her fellow African Americans are suffering from. Along with a white seminary student (Mackenzie Aston - Iron Will) from the north... and against the ever-increasing threat of racial violence... she promises to do what she can to help Dr. King's efforts.
A powerful true story that will both uplift and entertain - their perseverance and patience ultimately prevail, culminating
