Crisis : behind a presidential commitment( Visual )

12 editions published between 1963 and 2003 in English and held by 444 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Having earned John F. Kennedy's trust with his 1960 campaign-trail film Primary, cinéma vérité documentarian Robert Drew expressed his desire to document a president in crisis. When African American college students Vivian Malone and James Hood prepared to enroll at the all-white University of Alabama in June 1963, governor George Wallace defied a federal court order and vowed to prevent the students' enrollment. Kennedy granted unprecedented access to Drew and his unobtrusive four-team crew, who used handheld cameras to cover both sides of the conflict: Wallace self-righteously clings to segregation, while a flurry of phone calls between the president, attorney general Robert F. Kennedy, and deputy attorney general Nicholas Katzenback reveal a tightly coordinated plan to dismiss Wallace (in Robert Kennedy's words) as "a second-rate figure." Special feature: Drew's short film Faces of November provides an examination of the meaning of John F. Kennedy's death to those at his funeral

In addition, the Grand Dragon expounds his controversial views on racial segregation and the means for achieving it. "Howard says he's allowed us to come here to show us the new Klan is neither hate-filled nor violent," says McFadden, "yet what we heard and saw during our time with them suggests otherwise."
