Using an innovative fusion of scripted scenes with real and recreated documentary footage, this powerful film vividly evokes the tension, energy and excitement of a unique episode in American history: the moment the Civil Rights movement found its leader in Martin Luther King Jr. In 1955, America's eyes were blind to oppression and closed to change...and a solitary act of courage grew into a movement. The Montgomery Bus Boycott--launched when a black woman named Rosa Parks was arrested for sitting in the "whites only" section of a bus--ushered in the modern-day Civil Rights movement and introduced the world to a brave new leader.
