STAND! Untold Stories of the Civil Rights Movement Previous Broadcasts

KQED Plus: Sun, Feb 11, 2018 -- 6:00 PM

STAND! chronicles the key events which led to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr and the Southern Christian Leadership Conference (SCLC), selecting Birmingham, Alabama as the site for the now famous 'Project C' (Project Confrontation) in 1963. Bringing to light often overlooked and unknown facts about the system of segregation in Birmingham, Alabama, STAND! features the brave men and women who risked all to bring about its demise. STAND! dispels many myths that the Birmingham Civil Rights Movement was all Black, all Male, and led by ministers who rallied in 1963 and liberated a city. In the spring of 1962, a group of students from Miles College led by Frank Dukes, their 31-year- old Student Government Association President, created and launched a Selective Buying Campaign. Supporting the students were Miles College President Dr. Lucius H Pitts, selected faculty, local housewives, and members of Birmingham's White community. These factions brought about significant desegregation before Dr. King's arrival to the city in 1963. STAND! features interviews from heroes and heroines of the movement, who have, until now, been inexplicably unsung. The music of jazz legend Cleve Eaton, who played with Count Basie, Ramsey Lewis and many others, is seamlessly interwoven with hip hop beats from King B Low and gospel music by Nims Gay and Pat Fields. This authentic combination of music gives STAND! the true feeling and power that was the Movement.
