This film documents the Wilmington Massacre of 1898, a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a violent overthrow of an existing government and left countless numbers of African-Americans dead or exiled from the city. Director Christopher Everett will lead an audience discussion after the screening.
