The Intruder
This 1962 Roger Corman film deals with integration in the South, and was one of the few films at the time to do so. It stars William Shatner, in one of his best on-camera performances, as a racist provocateur who comes into town to stir up hatred just as the local high school is to be integrated. Written by noted Twilight Zone author Charles Beaumont and shot in the South, this low-budget indie production, as well as Shatner himself, received a number of threats from the KKK (along with much hostility from local authorities) and few theaters were willing to run it in its initial release because of the incendiary nature of it.

Please note that this film does contain use of racial epithets, which should be expected given the subject matter.
