Scarred Justice: the Orangeburg Massacre 1968

Everyone remembers the four white students slain at Kent State University in 1970, but most have never heard of the three black students killed in Orangeburg, South Carolina two years earlier. This stirring investigative documentary restores that bloody tragedy to the history of the Civil Rights Movement after years of official denial...Interviews with survivors of the Massacre, as well as journalists, the governor and a patrolman who had fired at the students reconstruct the horror of that night. Although the Justice Department charged nine officers with abuse of power, all were acquitted by a South Carolina jury. Forty years later, no one has been held accountable. Produced and directed by Bestor Cram and Judy Richardson. 2009. 57 min.
