Feature documentary showcasing some of America’s top contemporary musicians as they perform new and vibrant renditions of the Civil Rights Movement’s freedom songs – songs originally sung by civil rights protesters in mass meetings, on picket lines, in police wagons, and in jail cells throughout the American South. These songs literally provided the soundtrack for a revolution that forever impacted American society.
