In 1968 while at the height of her career as a world renowned entertainer, Eartha Kitt was also working as one of the main lobbyists for a group of young activists called the "Rebels With A Cause". During this time, she was invited to a white House luncheon by Lady Bird Johnson to discuss the issue of the rising crime rates in America. Eartha stood up and expressed her views that the increase in crime was mostly due to America's involvement in the Vietnam War. Lady Bird Johnson was personally insulted and by order of President Lyndon Johnson, Eartha Kitt was blacklisted from work in the United States for the following 10 years! DOWN TO EARTHA chronicles, through her music and actual testimony, this amazing woman's journey back to her own power. It is a brilliant affirmation that a woman's freedom of speech should never be compromised!
