    Description

    A fresh and exhilarating take on one of the most important social movements in American history, SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION explores the civil rights struggle through the powerful and stirring songs that inspired a generation. In this deeply moving documentary, legends of the fight for equal rights such as Congressman John Lewis, Julian Bond, Ambassador Andrew Young and Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow, Coretta Scott King, testify to the indispensable role that songs of rebellion and hope played in helping activists fight against brutality and injustice.

    In riveting studio performances, top contemporary artists including John Legend, Wyclef Jean, The Roots and Joss Stone reinvigorate and reinvent timeless songs like We Shall Overcome and Wade in the Water.

    Through a creative combination of historical footage, deeply personal interviews and heartfelt performances, SOUNDTRACK FOR A REVOLUTION makes an original, emotionally stirring contribution to the civil rights story. This stunning film is a testament to the vitality of music in the lives and times of those who strive for justice.
