Gotta Get Down To It

Valerie Martin, a young African­-American college professor, works at Sedalia College, a small midwestern liberal arts school. When the college’s invitation to a controversial conservative speaker threatens to divide the campus, Val is pressured into introducing the speaker and serving as the public face of the event. When she discovers that trying to keep everyone happy may cost her more than she is willing to lose, she chooses a side.
