Produced by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, CIVIL RIGHTS naturally has a very strong, Christian, biblical worldview. The entire video informs viewers how the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ was the driving force behind ending racial bigotry, prejudice, racism, and segregation in the Church and society. This message is centered on the truth that a racially united Church through Jesus Christ brought moral change to an American society desperately in need of redemption.

The message of this documentary should serve as a reminder, especially currently in a time of racial tension, of the Apostle Paul’s words in Galatians: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.” If there are no differences based on race or socio-economic status in Christ, then neither should there be in Christendom. Therefore, the Church and all its members should strive to bring racial reconciliation by exemplifying the words of Jesus Christ in the Book of John: “By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”

CIVIL RIGHTS is a powerful, historical documentary that upholds a Christian, biblical worldview. Everyone, especially Christians, should be encouraged to take time to watch this documentary and become informed about the efforts of the Church to bring racial reconciliation to itself and America.
