    About the film:

    Passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 represented not the culmination of the Civil Rights Movement, but the beginning of a crucial, new chapter. Nowhere was this next battle better epitomized than in Lowndes County, Alabama, an impoverished rural county with a history of racist terrorism. In the county that was 80 percent Black with no Black voters, laws were just paper without power. This film isn’t a story of hope, but of action. Through first person accounts and searing archival footage, LOWNDES COUNTY AND THE ROAD TO BLACK POWER tells the story of the local movement and young Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizers who fought not just for voting rights, but for Black Power in Lowndes County, Alabama.
