Dark Exodus

Dark Exodus (1985)
Director: Iverson White
16mm, b/w

Subjected to Jim Crow laws and an overtly racist white population that still sees Blacks as property, an African American family in the South sends its sons away to a better life.  Visualizing the migration of African Americans from the rural South to the urban, industrial North in sepia tones, director Iverson White’s period film captures the atmosphere of early 20th century America.
