Filmed interview with Sheriff James G. (Jim) Clark for Eyes on the Prize 1. Discussion centers on his actions as sheriff during the 1965 Selma voting rights movement and his opposition to the Selma to Montgomery March and to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
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 films 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.
