This Prelinger Archives film documents major protests in the struggle for civil rights for African-Americans. Segments focus on sit-ins at drugstore lunch counters in the South; a description of a confrontation between baseball great Jackie Robinson and airport officials enforcing a Jim Crow policy; a major march on Washington in which many white college students took part; and the effort to transfer African-American children into primarily white public schools in New York City. Major civil rights leaders, including Martin Luther King, Jr., appear in the film. The soundtrack features folksongs and African-American spirituals that helped to inspire protestors at the time, and, as stated in the end credits, a young Maya Angelou is one of the singers.
