ETV to premiere powerful documentary on the Orangeburg Massacre of 1968

South Carolina's public television station will soon be airing the documentary 'Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968' which brings to light one of the bloodiest tragedies of the Civil Rights era after four decades of deliberate denial.

The Orangeburg Massacre has been excluded from most histories of the Civil Rights Movement. But forty years later, some remember the tragedy as if it happened only yesterday. The film interviews the most important participants on both sides of the tragedy, some of whom speak for the first time about the Massacre.

The documentary will run on South Carolina's ETV at 10 p.m. on Thursday, February 4th, in honor of Black History Month.

Hat tip to The State for plugging this.
