PBS Documentary on Hoxie Wins National Award

January 8, 2004 - Posted at 11:33 a.m. CDT

 

MEMPHIS, TN - A documentary on part of the history of one Region 8 community has won a national award.  "Hoxie: The First Stand", directed by University of Memphis professor David Appleby, has won a CINE Golden Eagle award.

The award recognizes excellence in documentary films and video production.

The documentary told the story of the small Lawrence County community and school board's 1955 decision to voluntarily comply with the Supreme Court's 1954 school desegregation decision.  It aired last summer on the Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) and WKNO-TV in Memphis, and featured interviews with several northeast Arkansas residents who lived the event.

The honor marks the third Golden Eagle award for Appleby, who has also won awards for his films "Partners in Development" and "At the River I Stand."
