In 1962, a film was made to document housing discrimination in Madison. But just as the film was completed, UW suppressed it. The film was buried in the university archives for nearly 60 years. Recently, the film was rediscovered and made public. In this piece, we hear about how the film was made with hidden cameras and microphones, and why it is such important piece of history. This is the first of a two-part series.
For more details on the film, check out this episode of “Madison in the Sixties.”
Produced by Carrie Ann Welsh.
Music is “Longing” by Ketsa.
