Bending the Arc toward Justice

Bending the Arc toward Justice is a film about the struggle against racism in Alabama, featuring untold stories of both African Americans and a small group of little-known white allies who fought for racial justice during the Civil Rights Movement. Using mostly unseen photos and film footage from the 1960s, along with clips from more than 50 interviews conducted in 2016, 2017, and 2018, the film examines the complex challenges of racism—both then and now—with a special focus on the extraordinary individuals who were able to transcend their own “kind” and, at great risk, fight for the rights of all people.
