Based on the book written by Robert L. Wilkins. In Long Road to Hard Truth: The 100 Year Mission to Create the National Museum of African American History and Culture, Wilkins tells the story of how his curiosity about why there wasn’t a national museum dedicated to African American history and culture became an obsession – eventually leading him to quit his job as an attorney when his wife was pregnant with their 2nd child, and make it his mission to help the museum become a reality.
Bill Traylor: Chasing Ghosts is a documentary film exploring the life of self-taught artist Bill Traylor, who was born into slavery in 1853. The film screened at the opening of a major Bill Traylor exhibition at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in the fall of 2018. Spanning nearly a century, the film offers a unique perspective on Southern history and culture, and the experience of ordinary black people living through extraordinary times—Reconstruction, Jim Crow, and the Great Migration.
