As we press forward at a frenetic pace – we are right on target to meet our August 9 deadline. Our second video A Clear Channel is halfway complete. The team is collaborating in the CLiC office under the direction of Dr. Carter who treated us to a fantastic lunch today! What I am inspired by, is the creative process that we are generating as we work collaboratively to have this documentary function as a powerful statement on race relations during the 1960’s.
Today we have focused on Part IV of the video which covers aspects of Black Nationalism including the John Carlos story and the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. Pulling aspects from BBC Newsreels and Archive.org, we have gathered some amazing material for this piece.
