Synopsis: Truth to Power: Barbara Lee Speaks for Me tells the complex story of Representative Barbara Lee, a steadfast voice for human rights, peace and equality in the U.S. Congress who cut her teeth as a volunteer for the Black Panther Party and was the lone voice in opposition to the broad authorization of military force after the September 11th attacks. Rep. John Lewis, Senator Cory Booker, Rep. Ayanna Pressley and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Actor Danny Glover, CNN commentator Van Jones, and author Alice Walker share insights about what makes Barbara Lee unique as a public servant and as a truth-telling African American woman.
