In 1942, a southern man by the name of Clarence Jordan an agriculturalist and biblical scholar, could not understand the division of black and white churches. He started a commune in Americus, Georgia where blacks and whites would live, work, and worship together. A mentor to Martin Luther King Jr., Clarence ran into extreme opposition - but bullets, dynamite, nor the KKK would stop his journey. As the years went on, the farm went from a successful multi-family operation to a battered struggle to survive for the few remaining occupants. In the face of failure, a businessman named Millard Fuller, in search of reconciliation with God, showed up and picked up where Clarence had fallen. Under the personal counseling of Jordan, Millard breathed new life into the farm, fulfilling Clarence's life long dream of building a better world. This is the true story of the birth of Habitat for Humanity.
