Mississippi, America (57 minutes, history and civil rights)

Narrated by Ossie Davis and Ruby Dee, this story uses archival footage and on-camera interviews to reveal the little known, but important chapter in US history: how America’s attorneys volunteered to assist Black Mississippians in their battle for the right to vote and political representation in the 1960’s. It is a story of persistence and courage in the face of oppression and life-threatening violence.   Broadcast on PBS Primetime television (1996 – 1999).

Distributed to colleges and universities, schools and libraries by Films Media Group.
