Every year in Oakland, CA, hundreds of pre-K through 12th grade students compete in the Martin Luther King Oratorical Festival, performing a mix of published and original poetry and speeches. This documentary chronicles the months leading up to the 40th annual festival, as schools across the city send their top-placing students to compete. It is a portrait of passionate young people raising their voices about issues they care about – social justice, immigration and more – and of a community that celebrates them. Directed and produced by Amy Schatz; produced by Diane Koyler; executive produced by Mahershala Ali, Amatus Karim Ali, Mimi Valdés and Julie Anderson.
