D.W. Griffith’s KKK-friendly The Birth of a Nation opened in 1915 to big audiences but also widespread protests by African Americans, led by Harvard-educated newspaper editor W.M. Trotter. The Birth of a Movement captures this clash between human rights, freedom of speech, and a changing media landscape.
