Lot 8 Civil Rights History Items 2 African-American + 5 Native American Indian:
This sale is for a set of items concerning Native American and African American history. None of the videos have been released commercially, to the best of my knowledge, so they are very rare. Included are:
"Black Seminoles: A Tale of Courage." This lengthy article with many photographs and illustrations is about the African-American slaves who escaped to join the Seminole Indians, many of them becoming cavalry scouts. It is in Smithsonian Magazine, which also includes articles on Unalaskans (including the Aleut Indians), turn-of-the-century Paris, tractors, Bartlett's Quotations, Green Bay in Wisconsin, Arkansas architect E. Fay Jones, and the struggle to save the Guam rail. There is a 2/3 inch tear on the back, edge wear, and signs of folding on the back cover corners, but it is otherwise in good condition with a solid spine. The fascinating magazine has been stored in a smoke-free home. Custer's Last Rout. This ultra-rare NTSC (Region 1: North America) videotape contains an episode of the television series Unsolved History," Custer's Last Rout." This documentary program uses evidence to show the poor planning on George Armstrong Custer's part that led to his great defeat by Native Americans in what used to be called "Custer's last stand." (For some reason absolutely refuses to list the title at the beginning of this entry!)The War Against the Indians, a two-hour-and-twenty-one-minute television documentary produced in 1993 in Canada. All the interviews are with Native Americans and cover first-hand experience of the Indian schools as well as Native American philosophy and spirituality.
Black Hills, White Justice: The Sioux Nation Versus the United States, 1775 to the Present. This substantial trade paperback has slight edge wear but is otherwise in very good condition.Waverly Self-Guided Walking Tour 12-page pamphlet with triple foldout card stock map. The pamphlet, produced by the Historic Columbia organization, highlights significant locales in the Waverly area, a historically African American neighborhood founded in the 1870s.
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West. This hefty first edition trade paperback has mild edge wear and some speckling on the frontispiece but is otherwise in new condition.The March on Washington / Martin Luther King: Lifting the Veil. These rare episodes were shown on The Twentieth Century documentary program in the same year. They have never been commercially released.I'm Building a Bridge. This ultra-rare documentary was shown on the program Southern Lens, which I believe was only shown on South Carolina ETV. The documentary focuses on the Briggs vs. Elliott case, which challenged school segregation in South Carolina. It was one of the five cases which made up the historic Brown vs. the Board of Education case, in which the Supreme Court struck down legal segregation in school systems. This rare documentary has never been commercially released.
Waverly Self-Guided Walking Tour 12-page pamphlet with triple foldout card map. The pamphlet, produced by the Historic Columbia organization, highlights significant locales in the Waverly area, a historically African American neighborhood founded in the 1870s.
