"When the dawn came [on the day of India's independence], I cannot describe to you how heady that feeling was. It was as though everything was new, the world was new....You felt you could do anything, now that we were free." - Birenda Kaur, India. At the beginning of the century, much of the world's population lived under colonial rule. Britain, Belgium, France, Portugal, all boasted holdings abroad. But in 1947, 160 years of British rule would come to an end as India assumed the mantle of the world's largest democracy, inspiring the fight for freedom on another continent across the globe.

Freedom Now talks to the people who witnessed and participated in the struggle for independence in India and Africa. While Mohandas Gandhi showed the world how the masses could successfully defy their imperial masters, his example spurred others on: European empires in Africa and Asia began to crumble, and in short order, Ghana, Kenya, Algeria, Mozambique, and dozens more would win their freedom.

The people remember: colonial rule, Mohandas Gandhi, Indian independence, Ghana, Kenya, Mau Mau uprisings, government corruption, a new oppression, Algeria, Mozambique.
