Description
Description
A propaganda film produced in 1961 by the Louisiana State Sovereignty Commission, an agency created to defend segregation in Louisiana. The film attempts to show the peaceful coexistence of black and white citizens within Louisiana. It argues that even though black and white citizens use separate facilities in Louisiana, those facilities provide equitable services, including schools and libraries. In addition, both races also have an equal opportunity to use state services. Lastly, the film features Louisiana Governor Jimmie Davis speaking out against federal interference in the way of life within the state.
