This Black Soil- Sun Nov 14, 4 pm.
This Black Soil (2004, 58 min. documentary). This film, over 10 years in the making. chronicles the successful struggle of the people of Bayview, Virginia, a small and impoverished rural African-American community, in following a new vision of prosperity. Catalyzed by the defeat of a state plan to build a prison in their backyard, the powerful women leaders and residents created a non-profit organization, secured $10 million in grants, purchased the proposed prison site land and are now building a new community from the ground up. http://www.workinghandsproductions.com/teresa/This_Black_Soil.html
