Summary:
Starring: Melba Moore, Mary Alice, Ned Beatty

This is the story of a hero, perhaps not a traditional hero, for one would not necessarily look upon a young, frail of health, free black woman from a well-to-do Philadelphia family in Civil War times as someone who would implicitly inspire the word "hero". But then Charlotte Forten was an extraordinary young woman.

As a part of President Lincoln's "great experiment", she journeyed south to Sea Island, where she sought to give newly freed black children a decent education and the chance for a better life.

In many ways the story is as remarkable as the lady who lived it. For "Charlotte Forten's Mission" is the inspiring true story of one woman's courage and determination in a time of a world torn apart by the fear and prejudice that formed the Civil War.
