An unabashedly spiritual take on the Selma voting rights marches of 1965 from some of its unsung foot soldiers - Catholic nuns. Following ""Bloody Sunday,"" sisters from around the country answered Dr. King's call to join the protests in Selma. Never before in American history had avowed Catholic women made so public a political statement. In 2003, director Jayasri Hart reunited the nuns to let them view the protests on tape for the first time.
Skillfully edited archival footage documents the nuns' participation, offering an enthralling you-are-there feeling. -- Booklist, May 1, 2007
This important documentary is a compelling testament to...putting one's faith into action. -- Catholic News Service, January 18, 2007
