Selma Civil Rights marchers

Academy Award-winner for Short Documentary 1995

In A Time for Justice, four-time Academy Award-winning filmmaker Charles Guggenheim captured the spirit of the civil rights movement through historical footage and the voices of those who participated in the struggle. Narrated by Julian Bond and featuring John Lewis, the 38-minute film allows today’s generation of students to witness firsthand the movement’s most dramatic moments—the bus boycott in Montgomery, the school crisis in Little Rock, the violence in Birmingham and the triumphant 1965 march for voting rights.

“This concise, dramatic history captures for today’s students the idealist courage that sustained the civil rights movement.” 

Taylor Branch, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Parting the Waters: America in the King Years, 1954-63
