Freedom’s Call” is about the American Deep South in the turbulent ’50’s and ’60’s. We journey to Memphis, Little Rock, Oxford, Jackson and the Mississippi Delta with two African-American journalists who covered the important stories of the era.
The film features Dorothy Gilliam, first female African American reporter at The Washington Post, and Ernest Withers, renowned photographer whose work has appeared in the black press, The Washington Post and The New York Times.

Two of the stops along the way are visits with Minniejean Brown Trickey, one of “The Little Rock Nine,” and James Meredith, first African American to attend the University of Mississippi.
