Radio documentary about the 1964 Mississippi Freedom Summer, produced by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation
Disc 2. Part two: The way things may be (60 min.)
Two-part radio documentary about the experiences of the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project of 1964, including interviews with civil rights activists and Mississippi residents on both sides of the debate about civil rights, segregation and voter registration. Part one begins with a discussion of the murder of three civil rights activists, Andrew Goodman, Michael Schwerner and James Chaney, near Philadelphia, Miss., and includes an interview with Schwerner's widow, Rita, an excerpt from a speech given at Chaney's memorial service, and interviews with local residents. The social conditions of Mississippi are explored through interviews with residents, who discuss the nature of racism in the South; the purpose of the White Citizens Councils; the use of derogatory racial language; the insularity of Mississippi and resentment of outsiders seen as "agitators," and the economy of plantations and tenant farmers, described by farmer Hartman Turnbow. In a section on violence in the civil rights conflict, Fannie Lou Hamer describes being beaten in a jail in Winona, Miss., and a volunteer from Wisconsin describes being beaten in a medical clinic. Conditions in the black community of Harmony, where some out-of-state activists stayed, are discussed.
