Abdul-Jabbar will serve as narrator and executive producer of the one-hour documentary.
"One of this country’s greatest strengths is its willingness to listen to the voices of its people—whether at the ballot box or in the streets—and make changes to bring about a more equitable society," said Abdul-Jabbar in a statement.
