Based largely on first hand accounts and rare archival footage, the new documentary film February One documents one volatile winter in Greensboro that not only challenged public accommodation customs and laws in North Carolina, but served as a blueprint for the wave of non-violent civil rights protests that swept across the South and the nation throughout the 1960's.

Compelling interviews and reenactments of history that I thought I knew, but learned I knew very little about. One will fall in love with these individuals, these heroes, these everyday Americans who chose to do something extraordinary. It makes one ask oneself, would I have really had the courage to be so brave? We all want to believe so. But one cannot help but feel that these individuals' stories are so poignant because it is obvious that it absolutely mattered that someone stood up, walked in, sat down in those seats in Greensboro. And we can never diminish or downplay the risk, the peril, that was involved in doing so. Beautiful film.
