Filmed interview with Victoria Gray Adams conducted for Eyes on the Prize. Discussion centers on voter registration in Mississippi, the Council of Federated Organizations, Fannie Lou Hamer and the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party's challenge to the official (segregated) Democratic Party of Mississippi at the 1964 National Democratic Convention.
The original interview elements, 16mm negative and 1/4" audio reel to reel, were preserved during 2010-2016 due to the generosity of a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Thanks to a grant from the National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC), the preserved film were digitized to create 10-bit uncompressed HD files and the original 1/4" elements were digitized to create 24-bit 96kHz .wav files. The picture and audio were then reassembled at the Film & Media Archive.
