'The Powerbroker' at the Muhammad Ali Center

 
The Muhammad Ali Center Metamorphosis Film Series, in partnership with ITVS Community Cinema, is proud to present "The Powerbroker" by Bonnie Boswell. During the 1950s and 1960s, civil rights leader Whitney Young navigated a divided society. He challenged America’s white business and political leaders directly, but his efforts to open the doors for equal opportunity were often attacked by black Americans who felt his methods were in contrast with the Black Power Movement of the time.
