From Selma to Stonewall grabs the audience's attention from the very beginning and never lets go! The film explores the civil rights and LGBTQ equality movements through the journey of two unlikely friends; Rev. Gil Caldwell, a black, heterosexual, retired preacher/civil rights leader and Marilyn Bennett, a white, lesbian activist/author.
This powerful film begins with the civil rights movement in Selma and follows the modern LGBT rights movement galvanized by the Stonewall riots. It then delves into some of today's most explosive subjects: racil injustice, police brutality, transgender discrimination, LGBTQ homelessness, and where these issues intersect.
