Documentary filmmaker Frank de Felitta captures a vivid portrait of the insidious racism that permeated the south in a 1965 interview with Greenwood, Mississippi waiter/restaurateur Booker Wright, whose honest, unguarded comments about the oppression of southern blacks struck a major chord with the civil rights movement, and may have ultimately led to his being murdered shortly after the interview aired.
