Dorothy Foreman Cotton was a bold and highly effective civil rights leader, who educated thousands in their citizenship rights and inspired generations of activists with her powerful freedom songs. The only woman on Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s executive staff, Dorothy Cotton was a charismatic, courageous and consistently overlooked key player in the Civil Rights Movement, whose freedom schools, freedom songs and inspiring messages of the power within us all are profoundly needed today.
Programmed to mark the sixtieth anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s I have a dream speech. This documentary celebrates the work and legacy of a bold yet unsung civil rights activist and educator.
