You read a book in the library. Order a sandwich at a lunch counter. Register to vote. They're ordinary acts of everyday citizens. In 1961's Quinlan, Mississippi, they're acts of revolution. Freedom Song is a compelling saga of the Civil Rights Movement, a stirring chronicle of unsung small-town citizens who risked their lives to bring change to the grassroots level. Phil Alden Robinson 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 to the challenge of "if not me, who? If not now, when?"
