The Power Broker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights
This documentary follows Whitney Young as he moves between the streets of Harlem and the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, connecting the needs of Main Street to the interests of Wall Street. In the Oval Office, Young advised Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon along a path of historic change. By challenging America's business and political communities, Young was able to make in-roads where other civil rights leaders could not.
