About the film:
Whitney M. Young, Jr. was one of the most celebrated — and controversial — leaders of the civil rights era. The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights follows his journey from segregated Kentucky to head of the National Urban League. Unique among black leaders, he took the fight directly to the powerful white elite, gaining allies in business and government, including three presidents. Young had the difficult tasks of calming the fears of white allies, relieving the doubts of fellow civil rights leaders, and responding to attacks from the militant Black Power movement.

About Community Cinema:
Community Cinema is a groundbreaking public education and civil engagement initiative featuring monthly screenings of films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens.  Every month between September and June, Community Cinema brings together leading organizations, community members and public television stations to learn, discuss, and get involved in today’s critical social issues.
