The Civil Rights History Project: Survey of Collections and Repositories

Pincus film collection

Repository: Amistad Research Center

Collection Description (Extant): The Pincus Film Collection consists of approximately 52 hours of 16-mm b/w film footage shot in Natchez, Mississippi, between June and September 1965 by Ed Pincus and David Neuman used to create two civil rights movement era documentaries: Black Natchez (1967) and Panola (1967). In 1967, they returned to Natchez and shot ten additional hours of film for a planned sequel, which was never produced. The films focus on the lives of ordinary people with unedited coverage of public and private civil rights organizational meetings, street demonstrations, and contests of power between young militants and the old guard and secret meetings of black armed self-defense organizations and interaction among the black community. The addendum to the film collection consists of a 2003 oral history interview of Edward Pincus.
