Expelled from Germany, Rabbi Joachim Prinz arrived in the United States in 1937. Here, he witnessed racism against African Americans and realized the American ideal was not a reality. As rabbi of Temple B'nai Abraham in Newark, NJ and later as President of the American Jewish Congress, Prinz became a leader of the civil rights movement and worked to organize the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Followed by a conversation with filmmakers and family.
