On February 8, 1968, eight seconds of police gunfire left three African-American students dying and 27 wounded on the campus of South Carolina State College at Orangeburg. The shooting capped off four days of student protests over the desegregation of the city's only bowling alley. Often termed "the Kent State of the South," and pre-dating it by two years, the shooting marked the first time in U.S. history that police opened fire on students. Through interviews and archival material, SCARRED JUSTICE examines the tumultuous events of that day from a variety of perspectives and follows the ongoing efforts to seek justice for the victims.
