About 'Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power' Premiere

“Lowndes County and the Road to Black Power” documents the events that took place after the passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The rural area of Lowndes County had no Black voters, which was especially shocking due to 80 percent of its residents being Black. This town happened to have a history of racist terrorism, so it was time to fight for Black power.

To give Black voices a say and improve voter turnout, a group of bold activists got to work. The young Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizers took action, even putting their lives on the line.

From Greenwich Entertainment and directed by Geeta Gandbhir and Samuel D. Pollard, the film tells an impactful true story through interviews and archival footage. It features the powerful voices of Ella Baker, Martin Luther King, Hasan Kwame Jeffries, Catherine Coleman Flowers, John Hulett, John Jackson, Lillian McGill, Bob Mants, Courtland Cox, Jennifer Lawson, Judy Richardson, Kwame Ture (Stokely Carmichael), Mukasa Dada (Willie Ricks), Ruby Sales, and Reverend Wendell Paris.
