looking for the name of a movie?

I think it was in the late 70's or early 80's. It was about two college students, on vacation from college. One girl was white and one was black. They got stopped in this small town by a cop and were arrested and made to work on a workfarm. They were mistreated and abused. One day they helped take some of the crops into to sell and the white girl was able to sneak away to a phone to call her dad. He came to help them get out. I hope this rings a bell for someone.
