Documentarian Clennon King - Fair Game: Surviving a 1960 Georgia Lynching

Sunday, November 18th

While JFK was making a White House run in May 1960, a 24-year-old Black Navy vet from Bayonne, New Jersey joined a friend on a road trip home. Little did James Fair, Jr. know how ill-timed his arrival in rural Early County, Georgia would be. Less than three days later, he’d find himself behind bars, convicted for the rape and murder of an 8-year old girl, and facing Georgia’s electric chair.
Clennon L. King’s “Fair Game: Surviving A 1960 Georgia Lynching” chronicles the 26-month campaign spearheaded by Alice Fair to rescue her son from a county notorious for lynching. Dedicated to the 24 known Black men who were lynched in Early County, Georgia between 1877 and 1950, the documentary is a tribute to the Boston-based filmmaker’s late father, Atty. C.B. King of Albany, Georgia, who fought to prevent James Fair, Jr. from becoming the 25th victim.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Needham Public Library.
