Synopsis

The story of Gary Thomas Rowe Jr., who worked undercover for the FBI to infiltrate a Klan klavern in his Alabama hometown, later testifying as a key prosecution witness during the trial of several klansmen and writing about it in his book, "My Undercover Years with the Ku Klux Klan." Filmed in the spring of 1978 as "Freedom Riders," it had to be updated by a prologue (on-camera) and a voice-over epilogue by Robert Stack when Rowe subsequently was indicted for the killing of Detroit housewife Viola Liuzzo during the historic Montgomery Freedom March led by Dr. Martin Luther King.
