In towns throughout the United States, in the years between the Civil War and the Great Depression, thousands of African American families were violently driven from their land by their white neighbors. More than a century later these towns remain all white. Filmmaker Marco Williams brings this shameful legacy to light, as he investigates three such towns, addressing questions of racism, truth, and
reparations. (86 min) Sponsored by KBOO.
