    Produced by AARCH Society (African American Resources and Cultural Heritage).

    The oldest African American citizens in Frederick County, Maryland share the memories, wit, and wisdom that have shaped their lives. This locally produced documentary celebrates the rich history held in the life stories of the oldest African American citizens in Frederick County, Maryland. The poignant telling of their experiences from childhood, through segregation, to today is a window to the personal challenges they met because of racial prejudice, the community bonds forged in the face of that adversity, and the strength and resilience that have shaped their lives, and our community.

    A community discussion related to the film will be led by Barbara Thompson from AARCH Society's Living Treasures Program.

    Run time: 77 minutes
