Barbara Lee: Speaking the Truth to Power is an intimate portrait of Representative Barbara Lee, a pioneer on behalf of racial and economic justice and the lone voice in opposition to the authorization of military force after the September 11th attacks. The film reveals how many of the challenges faced by Lee in her early life provided her with the motivation and commitment to improve the lives of others throughout her tenure as an elected representative. With unique access to a sitting member of Congress, this film not only introduces the public to Lee but to many others such as Senator Cory Booker, Rep. John Lewis, Rep. Ayanna Pressley, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, CNN commentator Van Jones, actor Danny Glover and author Alice Walker—all of whom share insights about what makes Barbara Lee unique as a public servant and as a truth-telling African-American woman. Directed by Abby Ginzberg (Waging Change, Agents of Change, Soft Vengeance: Albie Sachs and the New South Africa).
