Negroes With Guns: Rob Williams and Black Power

This video profiles an African-American who advocated armed self-defense almost a decade before "black power." Menaced by a racist for trying to integrate the town pool, Williams pointedly asked after his wife ("How's sweet Stella doin'?"). Falsely charged with kidnapping, he fled to Cuba where he operated Radio Free Dixie, a station that broadcast political songs not heard on U.S. radio. Williams's rebellious spirit survives the standard-issue PBS style of directors Sandra Dickson and Churchill Roberts.
