Briars in the Cottonpatch.

Tells the nearly forgotten story of Koinonia Farm, a small Christian community founded by Clarence Jordan in Southwest Georgia in 1942 where whites and blacks chose to live and work together as equals despite the brutal and frightening consequences. Surrounded by segregationalist Georgians, they withstood bullets, bombs and boycotts in the years leading up to the tumultuous Civil Rights era. This award winning documentary examines the remarkable events that tested the moral boundaries of a community and planted the seeds for the global work of Habitat for Humanity. 2012. 57 min.
