This documentary looks inside the peaceful student protests that took place in 2015 over racist incidents at the University of Missouri. Bolstered by support of the University’s football team, the film offers a 21st-century example of how young athletes have built upon Ali’s legacy of social activism. A panel discussion with Delia Gillis, Professor of History and Africana Studies at the University of Central Missouri and Raymond Doswell, Curator and Education Director for the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum will follow the screening.
