"We haven't been this divided since 1968." Unfortunately, this has become a common refrain. This film goes back in time to 1968, an unmistakably divided time of student protest and racial unrest, to share the remarkable story of three racially segregated churches coming together in the wake of Martin Luther King's assassination. Their decision to merge will surprise you. Their dedication to stay together will inspire you. This is a story of the possible that reminds us that even in dark, divided times, the opportunity and responsibility to come together -- heart to heart and hand to hand -- rests within each of us. 


Director Statement

As the nation continues to wrestle with division, I was compelled to make and am compelled to share this film because I know how crippling it is to be told that you don’t belong. This film reminds us of who we are, what we are capable of, that a diverse people coming together in purpose can be powerful, and that though it is not without its challenges that this must be a place where everyone belongs.
