Featured film:
Oscar nominee James Earl Jones stars as controversial paster Vernon Johns, one of the earliest voices of civil rights. In 1948, Johns served as the outspoken spiritual leader of the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama. Incised at the racial injustice that prevaled the south, he was determined to fight foe equality for all African Americans. His refusal to accept segregation incited anger amongst local law enforcement and caused his family to fear for their lives. Johns held strong to his beliefs and encouraged his congregation to join him. But, the church council deemed him a troublemaker and he was voted out as pastor...only to be replaced by future civil rights leader, Martin Luther King Jr.
