Many of you may have read the Christopher Paul Curtis book “The Watsons Go To Birmingham.” Now, the world gets to see the story come to life, in a made-for-TV movie premiering worldwide this month. Before that, the city Birmingham will get a special showing a week early during Empowerment Week!

Executive Producer Tonya Lewis Lee stopped by the CBS42 Studios to talk with us about the movie.
