This dramatization of the true story of a black civil rights activist who, following Martin Luther King's assassination, goes home to a small southern town and runs for sheriff against a popular segregationist was "inspired" by events in the life of Sheriff Thomas E. Gilmore but was emasculated by severe last-minute editing by the network. The movie was originally filmed as a two-hour telefeature under the title "Lawman Without a Gun."
