  • For the Rights of All: Ending Jim Crow in Alaska

    Narrated by Peter Coyote, FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL: ENDING JIM CROW IN ALASKA traces the Native Alaskan civil-rights movement. The film profiles the remarkable people behind the victories for citizenship, voting rights and school desegregation, including Alberta Schenck Adams ("Alaska's Rosa Parks") and Elizabeth Peratrovich, a unassuming young woman whose compelling testimony helped sway the Alaska State Senate to pass the first civil-rights bill since the Civil War. Blending re-enactments, rare and newly discovered historic footage and photographs, and interviews with tribal elders, FOR THE RIGHTS OF ALL chronicles Alaska Natives' efforts to honor their heritage and leverage their future. [56 minutes]
