  [Screening @ the Tiburon Film Society]

The Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) hosted a special dinner tribute to the civil rights generation to commemorate the first anniversary of Coretta Scott King's death. The dinner took place in the Cannon Caucus Room on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C. and was organized by the NMAAHC in collaboration with Karz Productions for the purposes of the "Legacy" documentary. The 18 participants represented a wide variety of backgrounds and professions, including business, politics, the media, academia, and the arts.

The film explores the evolution of black/white relations and how these relations reflect tensions and conflicts at the heart of the American dream.
