Two Towns of Jasper

Dow, Whitney
On June 7, 1998, three white men from Jasper, Texas, chained African-American James Byrd to a pick-up truck and dragged him until his body disintegrated. This powerful documentary takes you to the white and black communities as it records their separate reactions to the most vicious racially motivated murder in the last 50 years. This film provides an unprecedented opprtunity to see the divisions that separate one person from another.
