A revised and updated version of “One Night in March,” a documentary film about Mississippi State University’s fight against racial discrimination in the early 1960s, will premiere at Hollywood Premier Cinemas tonight at 8:30 as part of the Magnolia Independent Film Festival.
“One Night in March” tells the story of a historical semi-final basketball game in the 1963 NCAA tournament during which racial barriers were shattered by MSU and its opponent, Loyola.
Robbie Coblentz, executive producer of “One Night in March,” opened up about the nature of college sports 50 years ago.
