The Film

During the bloody marches of 1965 in Selma, Alabama, a startling new group of leaders joined the battle for civil rights: African American and white Catholic nuns. Nine nuns look back at the events that changed their lives and helped make Selma a turning point for Martin Luther King's movement and for religious Americans.
