Inherit the Wind: The Landmark Trial That Rocked a Nation

Based on the famous Scopes "monkey" trial about a high school educator's choice to teach evolution in the classroom. Inherit the Wind explores threats to learning and intellectual freedom in a dramatic courtroom retelling.

Progress has never been a bargain. You have to pay for it.
Sometimes I think there’s a man who sits behind a counter and says, “All right, you can have a telephone but you lose privacy and the charm of distance.
Madam, you may vote but at a price. You lose the right to retreat behind the powder puff or your petticoat.
Mister, you may conquer the air but the birds will lose their wonder and the clouds will smell of gasoline.
(via HENRY DRUMMOND, a character in Inherit the Wind)
