Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple
If you all missed this program, you must try to catch it if it re-airs. Very, very creepy. And seeing it made this whole thing seem like just yesterday for me.
THe documentary did a good job, I thought, in highlighting two things that often do not get explored enough in other presentations about Jonestown: (1) just how politically connected Jim Jones had become, and (2) the large extent to which Black folks were involved in this organization.
