An important documentary of the activists of the American Civil Rights movement in the 1960's, made even more inspiring by songs that were sung by people to unite and strengthen the cause. Performers include Wyclef Jean, John Legend, The Roots, and The Blind Boys of Alabama. Uplifting and powerful.

Follows Martin's Luther King on his historical march for basic human rights through Alabama and Mississippi. It's accompanied by the songs and music of the protesters. Excellent movie!
