A Time for Justice: America's Civil Rights Movement

Uses first-hand testimony of participants and archival footage to present a compelling look at the battle for civil rights in the South, recalling the crises in Montgomery, Little Rock, Birmingham, and Selma. It depicts the struggle through the experiences of its "foot soldiers," who rode where they weren't supposed to ride, walked where they were forbidden to walk and sat where they weren't supposed to sit and stood their ground until they won their freedom. Dist.: Direct Cinema. 1992. 38 min.
