Documentary on Mississippi Civil Rights Reporter To Premiere in Nashville During Black History Month
Eyes on Mississippi, a 66-minute documentary film on dogged civil-rights reporter Bill Minor, will have its Nashville premiere Thursday, February 25 at the John Seigenthaler Center on the Vanderbilt University campus.
The film examines how Minor witnessed—and even occasionally shaped--U.S. history in his coverage of the civil rights movement. His even reporting from the struggle’s Mississippi epicenter stood in contrast to the distorted pro-segregation journalism of most Mississippi outlets of the era. Legendary black leader Medgar Evers trusted Minor as the rare local white reporter with a sense of justice. Truth became costly. Three 1964 Freedom Summer volunteers decided to investigate after Minor broke news of a Neshoba County church burning. The trio’s resulting murders inside the county awakened the nation.
