Black Indians: An American Story (2004, 60 min), by Chip Richie – brings to light a forgotten part of America’s past – the cultural and racial fusion of Native and African Americans. Narrated by James Earl Jones, the film explores what brought the two groups together, what drove them apart, and the challenges that they face today.
From the Atlantic Seaboard to the Western Plains, family memories and historical highlights reveal the indelible mark of this unique ancestry, and its continuing influence throughout the generations.
The screening will be followed by audience discussion and Q&A.
