    Summary: 
    In 1966 Frank De Felitta made a documentary for NBC News about life for Southerners in Mississippi. The content of the film upset many white Southerners and led to the beating of a black man, Booker Wright, the loss of his job, and eventually his murder. Forty-six years later Booker's granddaughter, Yvette Johnson, and Frank's son, director Raymond DeFelitta, are on a quest to discover who Booker was and how he changed life for black people.
    Performer(s):
