Just want to say this after watching the documentary twice. Myra Ottewell and MPB have performed a tremendous service. Mississippi ReMixed reveals how easy it is for a society to cling to the status quo when the majority is privileged. And in a quite constructive way, the documentary shows how the younger generation is changing the status quo. The complexity of race and the history of Jim Crow are laid out for everyone to see. Moreover, for both blacks and whites, this program sounds the alarm against complacent inertia, and with such intellect that viewers will have a difficult time trying to debunk the program's factual basis.
