In June of 1964, two groups of young men made up of musicians, college students, and record collectors traveled to Mississippi. Though neither group was aware of the other, each had come on the same errand: to find an old blues singer and coax him out of retirement. Narrated by Common and featuring new music by Gary Clark Jr., Two Trains Runnin’ revisits an important moment when America's cultural and political institutions were dramatically transformed.
