Africatown USA Documentary

We are currently working on several projects.

We have just completed our production; “Africatown USA” Documentary.

For our first project:  Our community building and educational programs. We will begin screenings the documentary within our communities, schools, and college campus’ during 2019-2021, commemorating the 400th anniversary of slavery that began in 1619.  

We will also, begin introducing our educational program (teaching the importance of learning our history, our traditions and our rich culture), a theatrical program and we will introduce our children's picture book for our school aged children. 

The theatrical program will branch out into our schools throughout the United States within the next three years.

For our third project, we are in the pre-production phase (development and screenwriting), for our featured-film; "working title film" and will begin production by Mid-November 2020.


producer's note

WHY SHOULD THIS STORY BE TOLD?

Africatown USA is a unique story of great historical significance. It's not just an African-American story, but it’s also an American story that is mandatory to be told and documented on film. This film tells the story of what is believed to be America’s last slave voyage. The film narrates the voyage of this enslaved cargo and the mysterious lost ship, Clotilda. The backstory is tragic and heartbreaking, and it is fully told on film for the first time.

IS THIS STORY RELEVENT TO TODAY?

Yes, the goal of the film is to raise the consciousness of the intended audience, as well as to entertain, provoke thought, promote discussion and inspire individuals alike with an understanding about our shared history. 

Marine archaeologists and researchers from search, Inc. have confirmed the location of the schooner Clotilda-the last known ship to bring enslaved Africans from Benin, West Africa into the Mobile Bay. The search team discovered the schooner in a remote area of Alabama's Mobile River.
