    Should just be a book. Not good though.

    Exceptional documentary where one of the civil rights workers from the north comes down to meet with de la Beckwith's son some forty something years after he had attacked him. Highly recommend. Tough watch but you should watch it.

    Very interesting, and enlightening. Amazes me how there is still so much racial hatred in this world...

    Paul Saltzman's courageous THE LAST WHITE KNIGHT was inspired by an incident during the early 1960s when he journeyed to the Deep South as a civil rights worker to help with voter registration in Mississippi, one of the hard-core bastions of the Old South. One of the first days he was there he was assaulted by a group of young men led by Byron "Delay" De La Beckwith, the son of the man convicted of killing civil rights activist Medgar Evers.

    Non-confrontational in the extreme. Paul interviews the KKK who suckerpunched him five plus decades ago but nothing is resolved, they're both just old now.

    At first, I saw Delay de la Beckwith as nothing more than an evil, sinister hatemonger, but as the film developed, and the interviews progressed, the conflict within Beckwith becomes apparent, as well as his ability to grow and change. Change takes time, and does not always come easily. Unfortunately, for Beckwith, it may be too late ..
