The Last White Knight:Is Reconciliation Possible?
The Last White Knight: Is Reconciliation Possible?
West Coast Premiere
Directed by Paul Saltzman
Documentary/Canada/78 mins/2012

In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Medgar Evers.

In 1965, 21-year-old Torontonian, Paul Saltzman drove to Mississippi, volunteering as a civil rights worker with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. He was arrested, spending 10 days in jail. He smuggled letters out of jail to the Toronto Star. Canadian Foreign Affairs requested his release but Saltzman declined. Posted to one of the toughest segregationist towns, Greenwood, he helped disadvantaged sharecroppers register to vote. He was assaulted by a young Klansman. In 2007, Saltzman returned to find the KKK member who had punched him in the head, to explore if individual reconciliation was possible. He found him and a 5 year dialogue has ensued. His assailant was, Byron de la Beckwith Jr., whose father, Byron de la Beckwith Sr. murdered NAACP Field Secretary Medgar Evers.  

Q&A with director Paul Saltzman and LA Urban League President, Nolan V. Rollins, ADL Regional Board Chair Seth M. Gerber, moderated by Naomi Pfefferman-Magid, Arts & Entertainment Editor of the Jewish Journal
