About the Movie

Home of the Brave is the story of the only white woman murdered in the civil rights movement -- and why we don't know who she is. It's told through the eyes of her children who revisit the mystery of their mother's death, which effectively tore their family apart. Their harrowing tale reveals FBI subterfuge, a corrupt justice system, and generations destroyed by a smear campaign, which erased this heroic woman from history.
