Among the wealth of untold stories in American history is the rise and slow disappearance of all-black towns that sprung up following the end of the Civil War. This feature-length documentary mines the stories of the last-remaining residents, while charting their heroic efforts to ensure their independence, and hopes for a better future.
The screening will be followed by a panel discussion led by filmmaker and University of Nevada, Reno, Reynolds School of Journalism Assistant Professor Kari Barber and local historians to discuss African American history and other overlooked stories in Northern Nevada.
