Abstract:

"The summer of 1964 was a turning point for the civil rights movement in the United States. It was a time when the activism of the civil rights movement came to a head with the violence of racism. This 'Turning Point' documentary chronicles that historic summer, and focuses on an act of shocking brutality--the murder of civil rights workers Michael Schwerner, Andrew Goodman and James Chaney by the Ku Klux Klan. They were part of a large group of young volunteers who converged on Mississippi that summer to fight for black voter registration"--1994 Peabody Awards entry form excerpt.

Through archival footage, photographs and interviews, this program looks at the civil rights struggle in Mississippi, and the death of three civil rights workers in 1964. The program includes footage of: civil rights protests and racial violence in Mississippi; Freedom Summer busing from Ohio to Mississippi; KKK rallies; black voter registration rallies; the recovery of the bodies and funerals of the three civil rights workers; and trial scenes of the suspected murderers. The program also includes archival interviews and speeches of Bob Moses, James Foreman, Mississippi Governor Paul Johnson, James Farmer, Rita Schwerner, Charles Evers, John Pratt, and Martin Luther King, Jr.
