An inspirational and timely story of courageous black history, starring Dayo Okeniyi (The Hunger Games), Ben Robson (Animal Kingdom, Vikings), Academy Award® Nominee James Cromwell (Babe, The Green Mile), Kat Graham (All Eyez On Me, The Vampire Diaries), and Academy Award® Nominee Bruce Dern (The Hateful Eight, Nebraska).
