Biography
Catherine "Kit" Clarke was a documentary filmmaker whose work emphasized civil rights and poverty in the South, and the anti-war protests of the 1960's and 1970's.
Clarke began her association with the Mississippi Freedom Summer Project as a volunteer for the National Council of Churches' Hattiesburg Project in 1964. During the Selma to Montgomery March in 1965, she worked as the assistant public relations and press officer for the mobile marching unit. She also served as a travelling reporter for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Summer Community Organization and Political Education Project (SCOPE) in Georgia, South Carolina and Alabama. Clarke was also an associate producer for "Lay My Burden Down," a sixty minute documentary for NET Journal about conditions in the South one year after the Selma to Montgomery March, and film coordinator and radio reporter for the 1968 Poor People's Campaign in Washington, D.C.
