Summary
A documentary on the Mexican-American civil rights movement. The film tells the story of one key injustice, the refusal, by a small-town funeral home in Texas after World War II, to care for a dead soldier's body 'because the whites wouldn't like it, ' and shows how the incident sparked outrage nationwide and contributed to the Voting Rights Act of 1965
