Booker’s Place [Movie Review]


Booker’s Place is in a sense a documentary about a documentary, a story about a story. In this case, the story of Booker Wright, a waiter in Greenwood, Mississippi. He participated in an NBC documentary back in the 1960s, where he spoke about his experiences as a Black man living in the South under Jim Crow. Having had the perceived audacity to speak openly about his experiences angered locals which resulted in Booker being harassed and ultimately murdered. While the story focuses on Booker Wright, there are also short interviews with the people who knew him. What’s telling is that many of them now decades later express having also experienced some of the violence, harassment, and ill-treatment that Booker endured.
