Description

Freedom Hill – ​Trailer premier and breakout session

Princeville, NC is the first town incorporated by freed, enslaved Africans in America located in North Carolina. Before its incorporation, residents called it ‘Freedom Hill,’ gradually establishing a self-sufficient, all Black town. The historical town has been inundated with flooding over the centuries.

The session will highlight the community of Princeville including the premiere trailer of the upcoming documentary short Freedom Hill. The session will also be followed by a panelist Q+A and the opportunity for participants to break out into “deep dive” discussions on community preservation as a means to protect and strengthen culture.
