For The Rights of All: Ending Jim Crow In Alaska -

Narrated by Peter Coyote, FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL: ENDING JIM CROW IN ALASKA traces the Native Alaskan civil rights movement. The film profiles the remarkable people behind the victories for citizenship, voting rights, and school desegregation, including Alberta Schenck Adams ("Alaska's Rosa Parks") and Elizabeth Peratrovich, an unassuming young woman whose compelling testimony helped sway the Alaska State Senate to pass the first civil-rights bill since the Civil War. Blending re-enactments, rare and newly discovered historic footage and photographs, and interviews with tribal elders, FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL chronicles Alaska Natives' efforts to honor their heritage and leverage their future.
