Main Event/Book:
The Wrong Side of Murder Creek by Bob Zellner (movie, “Son of the South”—in development by 2018 Cannes Film Festival Grand Prix Winner, Barry Brown)

“Reviled by some but admired and revered by many, Bob Zellner describes how he began protesting on behalf of social change and equal rights, and how decades later he still continues to struggle.” --New South Books

“Bob Zellner was jailed, beaten, slashed, shot at by police, and taken on a terrifying night ride by Klansmen as they debated whether to lynch him. He’s also a canny observer of major figures in the struggle, from SNCC legend Robert Moses to segregationist stalwart George Wallace . . . when Zellner survives to see white and black workers come together for a wildcat strike, it seems almost miraculous.”  

---Publishers Weekly
