In 1915, a journalist agitator and a brilliant filmmaker began an argument over this incendiary movie that portrayed post-Civil War era freed slaves as disgusting and dangerous. What followed was a public confrontation that spiraled into protests over civil rights. Join us to hear the true story of race, war, activism, and free speech that all began with a film.
