WNBA Players Demand Social Justice In ‘Power Of The Dream’

The documentary features insights from former and current WNBA legends like Sue Bird and Layeshia Clarendon.

The compelling new documentary “Power of the Dream,” now streaming on Prime Video, chronicles the remarkable story of a group of WNBA players who boldly took a stand for social justice and rallied behind now-Senator Raphael Warnock.

“Getting to the bubble felt like a win, and then we get smacked in the face with Kelly Loeffler’s letter,” said WNBA retiree and four-time titleholder Sue Bird.

“Saying she didn’t want us to have Black Lives Matter, Say Her Name [Breonna Taylor], anywhere involved in the season. I can vividly remember being like, ‘That’s bullshit. What do you mean? You own a WNBA team. You know exactly who we are. You know exactly what we represent.’”

A press release from Amazon MGM Studios provides that the documentary features candid firsthand perspectives from pivotal figures, including Bird, WNBA retiree Angel McCoughtry, the Los Angeles Sparks‘ Layshia Clarendon, Elizabeth Williams representing the Chicago Sky, Seattle Storm’s Nneka Ogwumike, as well as insights from prominent media voices Jemele Hill and Holly Rowe.

According to Amazon MGM Studios, “Power of the Dream” is presented by Prime Video Sports and hails from Industrial Media, Trilogy Films, Joy Mill Entertainment, and TOGETHXR. Tracee Ellis Ross is among the producers.
