Starkville company airs
documentary nationally

STARKVILLE — American Public Television is releasing the heroic story of a Southern basketball team that made race relations history when they played an integrated Northern team in the 1963 collegiate tournament.

“One Night in March” is the story of Mississippi State University’s basketball team who made history when they defied the state’s segregation politics to play the integrated team from Loyola University of Chicago. The game took place in East Lansing, Mich. on March 15, 1963.

Loyola won the basketball game, but race relations scored a big victory in this peaceful meeting of two teams in a culture and time when the races were having violent clashes elsewhere.

“This game is one of the most significant events not only in Mississippi State history, but in the history of the state,” said Robbie Coblentz, executive producer of One Night in March. “We’re honored to share it with the rest of the nation.”

“One Night in March” has garnered several awards — including a Telly — and been selected to film festivals in the U.S. and Canada.  It took home the “People’s Choice” award at the Magnolia Independent Film Festival in February 2013.

More than 100 American Public Television affiliates have scheduled the half hour documentary to air beginning in February, covering over 75% of US TV households.

Posted by | Long form/DVD, Watch | No Comments

In 1963, a basketball game captured the national imagination and influenced a state — and sport — for years to come. This is the story of an unwritten rule that fostered prejudice and segregation. It is the story of how a university president, his head basketball coach and their players risked safety and their future by defying that rule, a governor, and a legislature in 1963 Mississippi.

One Night in March is the documentary that first chronicled the story of the 1963 Mississippi State basketball team and their heroic trip to the NCAA tournament. Order your copy today at Amazon.com or at OneNightinMarch.com
