Summary: "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere." This illuminating program, filmed during a guided tour of civil rights landmarks, blends potent archival footage and photos with group discussion to sensitively explore race relations in the U.S. Visits to Selma, Montgomery, Birmingham, Memphis, Atlanta, Orangeburg, and other locations, combined with eyewitness accounts of key events by survivors of those years, steer the group's dialogue. Together, these concerned individuals -- white as well as black -- grapple with the issues of anger, identity, prejudice, discrimination, education, and reconciliation.
