Free State of Jones


Why watch this film?

In school history books, we learn about the great facts, the great battles, the famous politicians and generals. But human evolution is not just about the big names, but also about all those unknown people who, at some point, fought for what they believed in. What 'A State of Freedom' does is to highlight one of these small stories, more specifically about those who fought for racial equality in Jones County, Mississippi, during the Civil War. Watching this film is, somehow, to value the efforts of those men - and to have a perspective of history that school books will never bring.
