Dirt & Deeds in Mississippi

Directed by David Shulman
(California Newsreel, 2015)
82 min.

The documentary Dirt & Deeds tells the little-known story of the land-owning Black farmers who were the backbone of the modern Civil Rights Movement in Mississippi. Most stories of 1960s organizing highlight the role of young activists. Missing from the picture is their relationship with Black farmers who risked their lives and livelihood by putting up their land as collateral to get voting rights workers out of jail. In addition, most freedom schools and voter registration workshops were on Black-owned land. Dirt & Deeds highlights the community of Mileston in the Mississippi Delta, where most Black farmers obtained their land from an all-too-rare New Deal initiative. This is one of the most important new films on the Civil Rights Movement in many years.

Out-of School Time Book Series

Information Age Publishing (IAP) is launching a seminal and timely series on the current issues in out-of-school time. The new series will promote and disseminate original theoretical and empirical research and promising practices to further grow and strengthen the out-of-school time field.

The book series is intended to bridge research and practice and I think all of you would be excellent contributors. Please consider putting together a proposal and forward this widely to your networks. See details here: iap-current-issues-in-ost-call-for-ideas-due-1-31-17
