• Wilmington on Fire

    Wilmington on Fire is a feature-length documentary that chronicles the Wilmington Massacre - a bloody attack on the
    African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November
    10, 1898. 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 and exiled from the city. This event was the springboard for the White Supremacy movement
    and Jim Crow segregation throughout North Carolina and the American South.
