Director: Marco Williams
Running Time: 86 min.
From 1864 well into the 1920’s, in dozens of towns and counties, white Americans drove out entire African American communities. Many of these towns remain all white to this day. Banished brings to light this hidden chapter of America’s history, telling these dramatic stories for the first time. However, the film does more than present the historical facts. Most of the film takes place today, investigating the ongoing impact of the expulsions on families and communities, Black and White.
