Summary This documentary uncovers the largely unknown and pivotal role played by Black landowning families in the deep South who controlled over a million acres in the 1960s. They were prepared to put their land and their lives on the line in the fight for racial equality and the right to vote in America's most segregated and violently racist state.. In the face of escalating terror, Black landowners and independent farmers provided safe havens, collateral for jail bonds, armed protection and locations for Freedom Schools. They were often the first to attempt to register to vote and run for public office.. Narrated by Danny Glover and winner of a Television Academy Award, DIRT AND DEEDS IN MISSISSIPPI tells how an independent farmer and teacher who came to own the land on which his great-grandparents were slaves became the first Black candidate elected to a state-wide office in Mississippi in the 20th century.. "A provocative and deeply moving documentary that is highly recommended." - Video Librarian
