ITVS Community Cinema Presents: The Powerbroker, Film and Discussion.
During the 1950s and 60s, civil rights leader Whitney Young navigated a divided society. He challenged America's white business and political leaders directly, but his efforts to open the doors for equal opportunity were often attacked by Black Americans who felt his methods were in contrast with the Black Power Movement of the time.  A panel discussion follows the film.
