Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

This documentary covers the trip made by San Francisco civil-rights activists to the March on Washington. The passengers relate their own experiences in the ongoing, pacifistic fight for their rights under the Constitution. A black man relates his story about the march in Gadsden, Alabama in which the police were called and used brutal tactics in an attempt to disburse the peaceful demonstration. The sound recording is uneven, but the feature does get the message across.
