Abstract:

The killing of four white students at Kent State University in 1970 left an indelible stain on the national consciousness, but most Americans know nothing of the three black students killed at South Carolina State College in Orangeburg two years earlier. This documentary offers the definitive account of that tragic incident and reveals the environment that allowed it to be buried for so long. Although home to a majority black population, in 1968 Orangeburg still clung to Jim Crow traditions. When a black Vietnam War veteran was denied access to a local bowling alley protestors converged on the site, and what began as a nonviolent demonstration ended with the wounding of 28 students and the slaying of three. The film interviews key participants on both sides of the tragedy, some of whom speak about the Massacre for the first time.
