Living Saint Louis and Henry Hampton

KETC‘s Living St. Louis reported on the Henry Hampton Collection now housed by WashU‘s library. Hampton‘s film company Blackside created Eyes on the Prize and several other notable works. The video is available although the crummy WMV3 format has thwarted my attempts to watch it.

I blogged about the display in the Olin Library stairwell. I finally saw it last Wednesday. It is informative, but rather small. I learned a little more about Hampton’s own participation in the movment, including his presence at the Selma to Montgomery march, an event that inspired his making of Eyes on the Prize. If you happen to take a trip to the library, check it out.
