Production of a one-hour documentary about three African American men who broke the color line at the U.S. State Department in the years following World War II.

Changing State: Black Diplomats, Civil Rights, and the Cold War (working title) is a one-hour documentary about three African-American men who broke the color line at the U.S. State Department in the years following World War II. Our characters (Edward R. Dudley, Carl T. Rowan, and Terence Todman) helped dismantle long-standing color barriers in the Foreign Service yet were caught in the crossfire of the civil rights movement, Cold War politics and international public relations. Their diplomatic careers reveal the struggles inherent in representing a country that didn’t represent them. As African-American envoys of a segregated America, could they ignore the wrongs in their own country—and should they? They were pioneers, but pioneers with a problem: as they broke new ground, they were stepping into quicksand. Changing State is intended for national public television broadcast, with a strong educational tie-in and curriculum package.
