Hamilton Earl Holmes: The Legacy Continues is a one-hour documentary chronicling the dedication, perserverance, and strength of spirit demonstrated by Hamilton Earl Holmes and his family during their long and active participation in the civil rights movement in Georgia. In 1961 Hamilton Holmes was the first African-American man to be admitted into the University of Georgia. Later, Holmes became the first African American admitted to Emory University Medical School. The documentary also traces the efforts of Holmes’ father, uncle, grandfather, and family friend Charles Bell to desegregate public recreational facilities in Atlanta during the early 1950s.
This film is the second documentary film produced by the Foot Soldier Project, a joint venture of University of Georgia faculty and the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies dedicated to documenting and presenting unsung footsoldiers in Georgia's civil rights movement. The documentary was produced in partnership with the Richard B. Russell Library for Political Research and Studies and in conjunction with the Office of Instructional Support and Development.
