Filmmaking: “One More River To Cross” by Glen Pearcy

 Personal Note from the Publisher

 In 1964 – thanks to Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) organizer, Marshall Ganz – I became a “friend” of SNCC in Bakersfield CA and worked with others of like mind in the community to support from afar the civil rights movement in the South. In 2011 – thanks to filmmaker Glen Pearcy and his remarkable and very historic documentary: One More River To Cross  –  I was introduced to the 1961 SNCC-sponsored:  Southwest Georgia Project. I feel privileged to present this film in Syndic No.6, and as a former teacher, I submit this film should be required viewing for students everywhere.  — LeRoy Chatfield
