He crosses the country in search of the unknown stories that built a generation of heroes. From the little-known actions of iconic pioneers like Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X, and Lyndon Johnson to the many courageous deeds of unheralded champions, there's much more to America's fight for equality.
