Interview with Unita Blackwell conducted for Eyes on the Prize. Discussion centers on her decision to join the civil rights movement, SNCC and NAACP activism in Mississippi, the Mississippi Freedom Democratic Party, and the 1964 Democratic National 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 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.
