Duty of the Hour

The story of Dr. Ben Hooks is an exploration of this nation's long, complex, and difficult history of race in America. Duty of the Hour, a documentary that examines Benjamin L. Hooks' rise from the streets of segregated Memphis to the national stage, encourages each of us to ask, 'Am I making the seconds of my life count?'? Are we engaged in the civic affairs of our local, state, and national community? Whether we choose to live a private life or a life on a larger stage, the documentary makes the point that almost all of us can make a personal commitment to get involved with issues and people that shape our world.
