About “Walls that Bleed”
“Walls that Bleed: Story of the Dudley-A&T Uprising”, tells the story of Greensboro, North Carolina’s segregated all black James B. Dudley Senior High School and the local historically black university, North Carolina A&T State University fighting democratic injustices in May 1969. The Dudley students began peaceful demonstrations to protest the Dudley Administration’s removal of a qualified student, Claude Barnes, from the ballot of a student council election. The activities escalated into a three day exchange of gunfire involving local residents and students, up against the Greensboro Police Department and 650 North Carolina National Guardsmen.
The documentary highlights one of the most significant student and community uprising against racism, class exploitation and denial of basic civil and political rights. The African American community of Greensboro, NC was pushed to take up arms and defend themselves against the onslaught of local law enforcement and the NC National Guard. The event demonstrates the breakdown of political and economic intuitions and official mechanisms of conflict management.
