On February 8, 1968, eight seconds of police gunfire left three young men dying and at least 27 wounded on the campus of South Carolina State College in Orangeburg, S.C.  All of the police were white, all of the students African-American.  Almost all of the victims were shot from behind as they fled the gunfire that erupted without warning. It was the first time ever police opened fire on students on a U.S. campus.  Two years later Kent State would shock the nation.

This powerful yet disturbing documentary film explores the eye witness accounts of student protestors and police officer participants. Interviews with former Governor Robert McNair, the prize-winning journalists who covered the story, and many others, provide a compelling account of the price paid in America’s struggle for racial justice. It raises questions about an event that has yet to be resolved.

“This masterful film casts a brilliant lights on events shamefully obscured for decades.”

-Julian Bond, Chairman, NAACP Board of Directors

“This stunning documentary places the Orangeburg Massacre at the center of a long series of events that are critical to our understanding of the American civil rights era.”

-Darlene Clark Hine, Professor of History, Northwestern University
