“The Reverend Leon Sullivan (October 16, 1922-April 24, 2001) has sometimes been called the tallest tree in the forest. At 6’5″ tall, he certainly fit that physical description. A West Virginia native, he was a preacher, civil rights activist, and educator who effected change at the national and international level. The purpose of this documentary and supporting materials is to inform people about this principled giant and his accomplishments.”
