An anthem of the Civil Rights movement is powerfully relevant 50 years later

Sam Cooke’s A Change Is Gonna Come was released on 22 December 1964. Now, 50 years later, it is not only a symbol of the Civil Rights era, it is an enduring song of protest against injustice and inequality in a country that is still wracked with both. This elegantly constructed montage of iconic images of the Civil Rights era weaves Cooke’s very personal lyrics into their historical context, underscoring their poignancy then and now.

Director: Manoel Caraballo
