The Last White Knight - documentary Director: Paul Saltzman Canada 2012 / English / 78 minutes
As a young man the filmmaker volunteered on the voter registration drive in the South. He was assaulted by Byron "Delay" De La Beckwith, the son of the man convicted of killing Civil Rights activist Medgar Evers. Decades later, Saltzman returns to Mississippi to meet with Beckwith and see what, if anything, has changed in the New South. He meets a wide range of people, including a trio of dedicated, unregenerate Klansmen.
