"The Lowndes County Freedom Organization"
Remembering the efforts of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee
in rural Lowndes
County, Ala., a forgotten outpost in the civil rights struggle. Here the
demand for the vote was
answered with assassin's bullets and shotgun blasts. But the determined
campaign for civil
rights persisted and eventually gave birth to the Black Panther party. An
on-line study guide is
available for this program at http://www.alabamatv.org
