Share to google classroom

Part 3 of the Commemoration of the Orangeburg Massacre on its 40th anniversary: 

Dr. Sellers listens as the interview with Gov. Robert McNair, recorded in January 2007 at a Governor's Roundtable, plays, in which Gov. McNair reflects on those events. Dr. Sellers provides his insights, and a different view of those events that punished and vilified the victims, and says what a tragedy it is that the governor "never made any effort to reassess and go back and change what his first conclusions were about what happened."
