Synopsis

True story based on a landmark case that forced the military to fully integrate blacks into their ranks. In 1944, 50 black seamen were convicted of mutiny because they refused to return to work after 320 of their crew were killed in a munitions explosion. The following year, a young attorney named Thurgood Marshall appealed their case, insisting the verdicts were rigged by the Navy to cover up their dangerous and discriminatory policies toward blacks in uniform.
