banished: 60 years of making your hometown white

Chuck Tryon reminds us to watch Banished: American Ethnic Cleansings, a PBS Documentary that starts airing on February 19. The film documents the actions of white folk in various counties in the United States that expelled African Americans between 1864 and 1923. PBS offers an interactive map about these counties and some resources for discussions and facilitations. It would be cool to see a good discussion of this film. I probably won’t get a chance to watch it on television (since I don’t own one and since I’ll be preparing to leave for a campus visit), but I wanted to let others know about this film.
