The film is about the meeting of 20 African American church leaders with Secretary of War Edwin Stanton and Gen. William T. Sherman on January 12, 1865 in Savannah. It was this meeting that produced the US land redistribution policy known as "40 acres and a mule". A discussion follows the director and producer follows the screening.
