And the Children Shall Lead (1985, TV Movie)


"You can't trust them with voting," says the sheriff about blacks in his community. It is 1964 in the segregated town of Catesville, Mississippi, and Rachel who is black and Jenny who is white are best friends caught up in the firestorm surrounding black voter registration. The adults, both black and white, afraid of the inevitable changes that are surely coming, hang onto the old ways of dealing with their difference. It will take courage and friendship of the two young girls to overcome the racial barriers that divide their community.
