Freedom Song is a compelling microcosm of the Civil Rights Movement, a stirring chronicle of unsung small-town citizens who risked their lives to bring change at the grassroots level. Phil Alden Robinson (Field of Dreams) co-scripts and directs this powerful tale set in fictional Quinlan and based on first-hand accounts of veteran activists who stood on the frontlines of history and responded with passion and commitment to the challenge of "If not me, who If not now, when"Format: DVD MOVIE

"Like a stirring spiritual. Freedom Song gets it right. A glorious cast.  Bruce Fretts, Entertainment Weekly

Editor's Note
The story of the Civil-Rights Movement as seen through the eyes of a teenage Owen Walker (Shannon--THE HURRICANE) growing up in bigotry laden Mississippi in the 1960s at a time when Jim Crow black segregation laws were legal. Owen regrets his father's (Glover--LETHAL WEAPON) passive behavior against racism and joins the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) as they struggle to reeducate black citizens and gain basic human rights, predominately the right to vote. From the writer and director of FIELD OF DREAMS, based on accounts of actual SNCC members. A TNT original movie.
