    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- A screening of civil rights documentary Beyond Galilee was shown at Philander Smith College Monday.

    The film looks at the civil rights movement through the lens of Shreveport, La. The earliest full-length recorded speech given by Doctor King took place at Galilee Baptist Church in Shreveport and serves as the backdrop for the film.

    Filmmaker Tim DeWayne said he thinks we've forgotten our history.

    "I want them to take away that we're all in this together. Regardless of how you feel about me based on my color, my look, pre-judgment or prejudices. You gotta know that we're all united," he said.

    Philander Smith partnered with Little Rock Central High School and Pictergy Entertainment to put Monday's screening together.
