Freedom Hill

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE 

WINNER: Best Documentary Short

After the Civil War, freed African Americans settled in the floodplains along North Carolina’s Tar River. This land becomes Princeville, the first town chartered by Blacks in America. Guided by native Marquetta Dickens, Freedom Hill takes a tour of Princeville, a town simultaneously beautiful and regularly brutalized by floods. By sharing the spiritual, ancestral, and political landscapes of Princeville, Freedom Hill pushes against America’s historical and present legacies of racist displacement.
