Abstract
Booker Wright was an African-American restaurant owner who served double-duty as a waiter in a "whites-only" restaurant in Mississippi in the 1960's. He became an unlikely activist for the Civil Rights movement when he appeared on a network TV documentary reporting on the changing times in his small town. This documentary was directed by Raymond De Felitta, the son of the director of the original 1966 documentary, Frank De Felitta, and co-produced by one of Booker Wright’s four grandchildren, Yvette Johnson. It includes interviews with those who lived in the community. They discuss life at the time, and the restaurant Wright owned, which catered to African-American customers.
