This documentary uses Harper Lee's 1960 novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" as a lens to view race, class, gender, and justice. Woven through the film is the story of two extraordinarily different high schools in Birmingham, Alabama: one black and one white. They collaborate on a remarkable production of the adapted play "To Kill a Mockingbird." In addition to this unique collaboration, various leaders, politicians, and journalists lend their perspective: Congressman John Lewis, former Attorney General Eric Holder, journalists Katie Couric and Rick Bragg, actors Mary Badham and Phillip Alford, writer Diane McWhorter, scholars Charles Ogletree, Wayne Flynt, Cynthia E. Jones, and Marshall Ganz, lawyers Doug Jones, Reginald Lindsay, and Richard Jaffe, and activists Bryan Stephenson, Rev. Joseph Lowery, and Morris Dees. Together these diverse voices reveal that the United States has made progress but still struggles on issues of race, class, and justice. Please note this title contains mature themes.
