Plus Integration Report I (1960, Madeline Anderson): Scenes from the Civil Rights movement around the country, featuring the singing of a young Maya Angelou and shot by Albert Maysles. DCP. Approx. 20 min.
“Takes the viewer along on the ride, enabling one to experience something of the time, as Wexler films a bus of attendees—black, white, Jewish, Christian and most likely even atheist—traveling together from San Francisco to lend their bodies to a great cause and to be part of history in Washington.”
