Bad Moon Rising II

About This Item

Excerpts of raw, uncut footage from the KQED documentary Bad Moon Rising, produced by Steve Talbot in 1981, which examines a resurgence of the Ku Klux Klan and racially motivated hate crimes in California. Opens with views of Joan Baez singing with crowds at what she refers to as an: "Anti-confrontation gathering." She goes on to state during an interview with Talbot that: "The danger is that we are so floating as a population that people are liable to listen to what the Klan has to say. That's why it's scary having them on the streets." Ends with a montage of black and white still photographs, featuring disturbing and graphic scenes of racial violence inflicted against African Americans in the USA. These include views of public lynching and mutilated corpses.
