Louisiana State University journalism students try to help the Federal Bureau of Investigation solve civil rights era cold cases. A video clip was shown of FBI Director Robert Mueller announcing on February 27, 2007, that it was re-opening over 100 unsolved civil rights murder cases that happened, predominantly in the South, during the 1950s and '60s. Students and the editor of the Concordia Sentinel, the newspaper in Ferriday, Louisiana, talked about the 1964 murder of Frank Morris in Ferriday.

C-SPAN’s Local Content Vehicles (LCVs) made a stop in their “2011 LCV Cities Tour” in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, on November 27-December 2 to feature the history and literary life of the community. Working with the Cox Communications local cable affiliate, they visited literary and historic sites where local historians, authors, and civic leaders were interviewed. close
