  • "This program concentrates on the period from 1954-1956, highlighting the events that began the modern black freedom struggle. Prior to 1954, the South had followed a pattern of racial discrimination in state-sanctioned segregation. Racism was rationalized under a "separate but equal" doctrine. During this time, existing organizations, local leaders and ordinary citizens became involved in the black freedom struggle. The lynching in Mississippi of 14-year-old Emmett Till led to a trial that caught the attention of the national news media. The courage of Rosa Parks triggered the 1955/56 Montgomery, Alabama boycott which forced the desegregation of public buses. Prevalent patterns of racial discrimination became the topic of political discussion. Newsreel footage of the period traces the resistance of white southerners to the burgeoning black civil rights movement. The formation of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference is also featured."
