Winner at the Atlanta Jewish Film FestivalDivisive seeds of hate are taking root anew in the American landscape. People who lived through the Civil Rights era of the 1960s will remember that common cause was found as Jewish leaders, often at their peril, backed Dr. King’s efforts at racial equality and harmony. Pivotal events come alive in this film through a treasure trove of archival materials, narrated by eyewitnesses, activists, Holocaust survivors and civil rights leaders, including Congressman John Lewis, Amb Andrew Young, Rabbi Alvin Sugarman, Rabbi Peter S. Berg, Oscar-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr., members of the King family and many others. This potent, inspiring story of unity, empathy and partnership validates the ubiquity of the human experience, and how freedom and equality for all can be achieved only when people come together.
