Identifier: RT-CR0007


  • Creation: 2018-12-14


Steve Crump recounts his life as a television reporter and documentary filmmaker from the 1980s into the 2010s. He describes his second career as a director of television documentaries, primarily about the African-American experience. Many of these programs focused on people from the Civil Rights era and he captured their voices, telling their own stories before they died. Other documentaries were about historic events including the era of the black horse jockeys in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the development of black radio in the South in the post-World War II era, and his youthful reporting on the Ku Klux Klan in the early 1980s.
