About the film

Storming Caesars Palace uplifts the extraordinary story of civil rights icon, Ruby Duncan, who went from a protester to a strategic organizer to a White House adviser. She led a grassroots movement that fought for basic income guarantee for families, challenging US presidents and the Las Vegas mob, ultimately shutting down the Las Vegas Strip and Caesars Palace in her fight toward equality.
