Walk With Me: The Trials of Damon J. Keith

A film by Jesse Nesser

USA, 104 minutes

Here is the story of ten extraordinary years, four groundbreaking cases and one unconventional federal judge, whose rulings forever changed the face of civil rights in the United States. Judge Damon J. Keith, an African American, was appointed to the U.S. District Court in Detroit in 1967, three months after race riots rocked that city. The filmmakers and audiences witness how this rookie judge became a fearless and extraordinary judge whose rulings, 50 years later, continue to resonate in a nation still arguing about which lives matter.
