Summary
Documentary about the forgotten history of racial cleansing in American when thousands of African Americans were driven from their homes and communities by violent racist mobs in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. In fear for their lives, black people left these towns and never returned to reclaim their property. The filmplaces these events in the context of present day race relations, by following three concrete cases of towns that remain all-white to this day (Forsyth County, Georgia; Pierce City, Missouri; Harrison, Arkansas). This program also raises the larger questions--will the United States ever make meaningul reparations for the human rights abuses suffered, then and now, against its African American citizens? Can reconciliation between the races be possible without them?
