Summary
  • A stirring yet jubilant glimpse of the youth involvement that played an invaluable role in the Civil Rights movement
  • There's a sweet smell in the air as two young girls sneak out of their house, down the street, and across town to where men and women are gathered, ready to march for freedom and justice. Inspired by the countless young people who took a stand against injustice
