When Booker spoke the truth he became an unlikely activist at the heart of Mississippi's civil rights movement. When Frank De Felitta travelled to Mississippi in the 60s to make a film for NBC News he came across a black waiter with something to say about segregation. Booker defined racism with a colloquial eloquence that was chilling. But as his words broadcast across America, they stirred up a hornet's nest. Forty-five years on, Frank's son returns with Booker's granddaughter, to find out what role his five minutes of fame played in his tragic life.
