This hour-long TV documentary takes us to Atlanta, Georgia, cradle of the Civil Rights Movement, in the critical decade of the 1960s.

Along with the city’s African American intelligentsia and clergy, and key members of the mostly white business community, Mayor Ivan Allen led Atlanta down a different road than any other southern city.
