The Great Divas Of Gospel
An All Star Reading of
The People of Clarendon County, by Ossie Davis
S. Epatha Merkerson, Geoffrey Owens & Roscoe Orman
Directed by Allie Woods, Jr.
Clarendon County, a rural community in
South Carolina, was the battleground of black sharecroppers, domestic
workers, laborers and clergymen who joined with the NAACP to fight for
better schools for Black children. This small but mighty group of brave
visionaries filed their lawsuit, Briggs v Elliott, in 1951. This was the
first of five cases that led to the breakthrough 1954 Supreme Court
case, Brown v. Board of Education.
