Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment
This documentary offers an "as it happened" look at one of the crucial standoffs in the history of the American Civil Rights movement, as Alabama Governor George Wallace refuses to desegregate his state's schools in 1963, openly defying the edict of U.S. President John F. Kennedy. Directed by Robert Drew, Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment features vintage footage of Wallace and Kennedy, as well as James Hood and Vivian Malone, the two African-American students refused admission to an otherwise all-white school by Wallace.
