(Ext. 2212) A unique film, from the 1860s to the 1920s, dozens of towns 
and counties across America violently expelled entire African American 
communities, forcing thousands of black families to flee their homes. A 
century later, these towns remain all white. /Banished/ tells the story 
of three of these counties. A panel discussion will follow the film.
