Beyond Galilee

Posted on 2018-07-20

In August of 1958, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was invited to Shreveport, Louisiana to deliver a speech at the Galilee Baptist Church as part of a voter registration workshop. 'Beyond Galilee' explores how King's prophetic words unfolded in the years that followed by highlighting the key events of the city's Civil Rights movement through the testimonies of the actual participants and supplemented by rare audio of King's speech, news footage, home movies and photos from the era. 'Beyond Galilee' chronicles a vital part of Shreveport's history and offers much needed perspective on the city's role in the national Civil Rights movement .
