Product Notes

The Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights tells the story of Whitney Young, who biographer Nancy Weiss Malkiel called "the inside man of the black revolution." the Powerbroker follows Young as he shuttles between the streets of Harlem and the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies, tying the needs of Main Street to the interests of Wall Street. In the Oval Office, Young advised Presidents Kennedy, Johnson, and Nixon and guided each along a path toward historic change. By challenging America's business and political communities directly, Young was able to make in-roads where other civil rights leaders could not. The film chronicles the public and private trials of a man navigating a divided society in an explosive time. Years in the making, the Powerbroker: Whitney Young's Fight for Civil Rights reveals a story that has been overlooked by history.
