While I Breathe, I Hope is a feature documentary film that explores what it means to be young, Black, and Progressive in the American South through the experiences of South Carolina Politician Bakari Sellers.
SCARRED JUSTICE: THE ORANGEBURG MASSACRE 1968 brings to light one of the bloodiest tragedies of the Civil Rights era after four decades of deliberate denial. The killing of four white students at Kent State University in 1970 left an indelible stain on our national consciousness. But most Americans know nothing of the three black students killed at South Carolina State College in Orangeburg two years earlier.
For civil rights leader Cleveland Sellers, the significance and power of the March on Washington transcends generations. Sellers, who was on the National Mall that historic day, and son Bakari Sellers, a S.C. state representative, join Gwen Ifill to reflect on what the march has meant to their family and to all Americans.
