In 1968, just a couple hours south of Charlotte, police in South Carolina shot and killed three black students and injured many others — just because they wanted to integrate an all-white bowling alley. Award-winning black journalist Steve Crump of WBTV has produced a documentary on the horrific massacre, and civil rights photographer Cecil Williams has published a book on it. Both will be on hand for the premiere of the documentary.

The trailer below plugs an earlier screening in South Carolina, but you get the point.
