This documentary follows educator
Eliot Battle and the pivotal role he played in
desegregating schools, housing, and the
Columbia community. As Eliot facilitated
changes with quiet resolve, he also faced resistance from both the black and white
calm demeanor and dedicated work within existing institutions
allowed him to
bridge the gap between races and change Columbia
for the better.
'Battle: Change From
Within' has been a feature film at Columbia’s Ragtag Cinema, Kansas City Film
Festival, San Diego Black Film Festival, and Offshoot Film Festival in
northwest Arkansas. Awards include the
Telly award for Outstanding Documentary and Best
Heartland Feature Documentary Award at the Kansas City Film Festival
