INDEPENDENT LENS | THE ORDER OF MYTHS | Film Clip 3 | PBS

http://www.pbs.org/independentlens/orderofmyths/ The doctrine, "separate but equal" ended in the 1950s, right? Think again. At America's oldest Mardi Gras -- celebrated each year in Mobile, Alabama -- events remain segregated between white and black residents. Beneath the surface of pageantry, lies a complex story about race relations and the ever-present racial divide that persists in America today. In this clip, members of the Striker mystic society enjoy the freedom of anonymity that comes with wearing a mask. THE ORDER OF MYTHS premieres Tuesday, February 24 on Independent Lens, a weekly series airing on PBS. Hosted by Terrence Howard, the acclaimed series showcases powerful and innovative independent films. Presented by ITVS, Independent Lens is broadcast on PBS stations nationwide.
