Integration Report 1

Newly preserved by the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, Madeline Anderson’s INTEGRATION REPORT 1 (1960) brings viewers to the front lines of the fight for civil rights.

INTEGRATION REPORT 1 examines the struggle for black equality in Alabama, Brooklyn and Washington, D.C., incorporating footage by documentary legends Albert Maysles and Ricky Leacock, protest songs by Maya Angelou, and a speech by Martin Luther King, Jr.

The films of Madeline Anderson are both essential historical records of activism and a vital body of cinematic work.
