William Minter's picture

Sharing a link to a new film review by William Minter and Michael Honey of the documentary highlighting the role of Black landowners in the civil rights movement in Mississippi, with a particular focus on Holmes County.

See http://www.noeasyvictories.org/usa/dirt-deeds.php for the review. It was published in Poverty and Race, January-March, 2017, Poverty & Race Research Action Council (PRRAC).

Also included is a link to a new database of relevant resources on this history at http://www.noeasyvictories.org/usa/holmes-county.php

This only includes a few entries as of now, but I will be adding more. Additional suggestions are very welcome either in an email to my address (in the article) or in a reply on H-1960's.
