Starting in the 1880s, Southern states throughout the USA began passing laws which economically favored European Americans, giving this group a huge, controllable, and designated labor force and preventing African American citizens from improving their status or achieving economic and social equality. This period which lasted until the Civil Rights bill in the 1960 became know as the Jim crow era. In South Africa similar Apartheid laws where being passed against the Black majority population. This documentary chronicles the fight for Civil Rights & equality across two continents.
