An intense documentary about racial violence in Mississippi the growing rifts within the civil rights movement, paired with two illuminating works of documentary.

 
Black Natchez (1965)
Directed by Edward Pincus and David Neuman
RUN TIME: 62min
FORMAT: Digibeta 
“All sorts of rules were being created in documentary film — no script, no narration, no interviews, no lighting, no mic boom, no collusion between subject and filmmaker.”
In the second year of intensive voter registration drives in Mississippi, Ed Pincus headed to an especially inhospitable corner of the state and started shooting. A car bombing of a civil rights leader sends the activists into a tailspin, exposing the growing rifts within the movement. 
An Interview with Bruce Gordon (1964)
RUN TIME: 17min
FORMAT: Blu-ray 

Bruce Gordon, a 22-year-old organizer for the Student Non-violent Coordinating Committee, is interviewed in Selma, Alabama, during the height of a drive to register Negro voters.

 
 
 
The Streets of Greenwood (1963)

Directed by Jack Willis, Fred Wardenburg, and John Reavis
RUN TIME: 20min
FORMAT: Digibeta

 

Featuring a performance by a young Bob Dylan, The Streets of Greenwood is one of the most iconic documentaries of its era, capturing the heroic efforts and boundless energy of the Freedom Riders as they rallied to register voters in Greenwood, Mississippi.
