In 1915, Boston-based African American newspaper editor and activist William M. Trotter waged a battle against D.W. Griffith’s technically groundbreaking but notoriously Ku Klux Klan-friendly The Birth of a Nation, unleashing a fight that still rages today about race relations, media representation, and the power and influence of Hollywood. Birth of a Movement, based on Dick Lehr's book The Birth of a Movement: How Birth of a Nation Ignited the Battle for Civil Rights, captures the backdrop to this prescient clash between human rights, freedom of speech, and a changing media landscape.Birth of a Movement featuring Danny Glover and Spike Lee is streaming with subscription on Netflix, streaming with subscription on Prime Video, available for rent or purchase on iTunes, and 3 others. It's a documentary movie with a better than average IMDb audience rating of 7.3 (63 votes).
