Storyline

John M. Perkins was born into Mississippi poverty, the son of a sharecropper.

Although he vowed never to return, Perkins returned with his wife Vera Mae and their young family to Mississippi in 1960, eager to share the gospel of Christ with those still living in the region.

Challenging and prophetic, yet filled with grace
25 January 2015 | by briancm-1See all my reviews

Clearly not a film that would succeed in theaters, but it's not made for that purpose. It addresses primarily those who have biblically based faith as Christians.

It is powerful and prophetic. These people have suffered immensely just for being black; but also they have suffered for their trust in God. Their watchword is reconciliation. It is incredible how people who have been horribly persecuted can emerge with love and forgiveness in their hearts.

These people have helped transform a very dark region of this country. If you are a believer in Jesus, or if you are simply interested in racial justice, you will be VERY glad you have watched this film. I cannot think of a single person I have ever known who would not benefit in a major way from watching this film.
