Briars in the Cotton Patch: The Story of Koinonia Farm DVD
|Briars in the Cotton Patch explores the unknown story of Koinonia Farm, which may have been the most daring social experiment in the south during the last century. Started in 1942, blacks and whites lived together on the Georgia farm, broke bread at the same table, and got paid the same wages. The commune, which was started by a white preacher and Greek scholar named Clarence Jordan, became the target of white anger - with bombs, boycotts and shootings. Out of this violent history grew the worldwide movement of Habitat for Humanity International. Former President Jimmy Carter says “Briars in the Cotton Patch “ is the intriquing story of a courageous Christian who’s historic racial experiment predated the more famous civil rights movement by fifteen years. “ Briars “ is scheduled to air on PBS in South Carolina and Georgia in January 2004 and could be seen on your PBS station later this year.|
