Also airs on PBS Western Reserve on Monday, Feb. 10, at 1 a.m.

This documentary tells the story of a historic concert at the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Ala., more than 50 years after a hate crime there killed four African American girls.

Conducted by Dr. Henry Panion III, the concert performance features musical instruments that serve as symbols of hope—violins restored from Holocaust concentration camps. The documentary incorporates behind-the-scenes interviews reflecting on the purpose of the event: to celebrate the resilience of those who have faced hate, discrimination and racism.
