Synopsis by Dan Pavlides

This documentary focuses on the failure of civil rights proponents to successfully unite the people in peaceful protest to change segregated Natchez, Mississippi. NAACP field secretary Charles Evers warns of the potential violence that led to the death of his brother Medgar Evers. The failure of the NAAPC and the Federal Democratic Party to collaborate for the effort hampered the movement to implement racial integration in the city in 1965. The failure to unite the factions led to frustration and further disillusionment in the black community.
