It’s the story of a fictional family who find themselves in a very real moment in Birmingham’s history. Many of you may have read the Christopher Paul Curtis book “The Watsons Go To Birmingham.” Now, the world gets to see the story come to life, in a made-for-TV movie premiering worldwide this month. Before that, the city Birmingham will get a special showing a week early during Empowerment Week!
Executive Producer Tonya Lewis Lee stopped by the CBS42 Studios to talk with us about the movie.
