In the summer of 1964, hundreds of student volunteers from across the U.S. spent 10 weeks in Mississippi, then known as the nation's most segregated state, in an historic effort to shatter the foundations of white supremacy. Through archival footage and intimate interviews with organizers, participants and local citizens, this inspiring film from director Stanley Nelson tells the searing story of those volatile and violent months and reminds us of the risks and sacrifices involved in ending segregation. – SFD
