Knowitall Media Features Programs Commemorating The Orangeburg Massacre
All through African American History Month, Knowitall Media will feature documentaries, series, collections and individual videos you'll want to be sure to view.
Featured currently on Knowitall Media are three programs on The Orangeburg Massacre.
The first, produced in 1993, is Tragedy at Orangeburg: 25 Years Later:
Two reporters, Jack Bass and Jack Nelson authored the book, "The Orangeburg Massacre," which documented the events. The SCETV documentary features Cleveland Sellers, an organizer and activist who was not involved in the events that led up to the shootings, but was arrested, based on his prior involvement in SNCC, the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Included are interviews with Col. J,H. Lanier, retired, of the S.C. Highway Patrol; author Jack bass; Dean Livingston, editor of the Orangeburg Times & Democrat; photographer Cecil Williams; Dr. M. Maceo Nance, former President of S.C. State College; and John Stroman, former S.C. State College student.
The other two programs were produced on the 40th anniversary, as a commemoration:
Each program is different and contains interviews that are revealing and confounding, and each person interviewed assists us toward a better understanding of this story and the impact it has had on all of our lives.
* Please Note: These programs may not be suitable for all audiences.
In addition, we are offering Family Across the Sea:
This award-winning program explores the remarkable connections between the Gullah of the South Carolina/Georgia Sea Islands and the people of West Africa, particularly those of Sierra Leone. Taped in South Carolina and Africa, the program traces the truly unparalleled historical connection and continued relationship from the time of slavery. The development of these two cultures is examined over the course of time, considering aspects of language, culture, folkways, and music common to both sides of this "family."
