The gripping story of Mississippi waiter Booker Wright (pictured) and his revealing appearance in a 1966 documentary filmed during the Civil Rights Movement has Wright's family speculating whether his appearance in the film led to his murder. A chilling video clip from journalist Frank DeFellita's NBC documentary "Mississippi: A Self-Portrait" featured a two-minute interview with Wright who spoke on the injustices he faced and his struggle to remain dignified despite the racial abuse.
