The High Point Museum is hosting a screening of the new documentary "The March on an All-American City" Saturday, January 14 at 10 am. The film offers a glimpse into the history of High Point's African American community during the Civil Rights Movement. Prominent citizens of High Point share their stories and experiences from that time period.
The documentary, approximately two hours long, was produced by Phyllis Bridges, a local African American historian.
"Showing at the High Point Museum gives the community an opportunity to come out and learn more about African American history in High Point," Bridges said. "The African American community has a lot of stories that need to be told, stories that are important to know so that we never forget those who contributed to the betterment of the city."
The showing is free and open to the public.
The High Point Museum, a division of the High Point Public Library, is dedicated to sharing Greater High Point’s history, providing perspective for current issues, and strengthening the sense of community.
