  • Description

    Negroes in Greenwood, Mississippi marching in to court house to register to vote and marching out again. Later they were dispersed by police and dogs. However, no film of this was shot. Police prevented it, and confiscated enemy film entirely. One Negro minister was bitten by a dog after these scenes were shot. Greenwood has been the scene of intense Negro voting registration efforts. Last week the Negro registration headquarters was burned out. One Negro registration worker was wounded by gunfire from a passing car FBI and Civil Rights Commission investigators are in the area investigating the efforts to prevent Negroes - who out number whites 2 to 1 -- from registering and voting.
