ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) Officials at South Carolina State University say a documentary detailing the deadly protest of a segregated bowling alley in 1968 is set to premiere.

The school announced Tuesday the premiere of the documentary "Scarred Justice: The Orangeburg Massacre 1968" in February.

Three students were gunned down on Feb. 8, 1968 by state troopers during a rally on the outskirts of South Carolina's largest historically black campus. The students were protesting a bowling alley owner's refusal to allow blacks into his business.

University spokeswoman Erica Prioleau (PRAY'-loh) says the documentary will be shown for the first time Feb. 8 as part of the university's annual commemoration. It will be aired on public television stations later this year.
