FILM #5: Banished--The Ethnic Cleansing Of Blacks in America
From the 1860s to the 1920s, towns across the U.S. violently expelled African American residents. Today, these communities remain virtually all white.
As black descendants return to demand justice, BANISHED exposes the hidden history of racial cleansing in America.
