Wilmington on Fire DVD
'Wilmington on Fire' is a new feature-length documentary that chronicles The Wilmington Massacre of 1898. The Wilmington Massacre of 1898 was a bloody attack on the African-American community by a heavily armed white mob with the support of the North Carolina Democratic Party on November 10, 1898 in the port city of Wilmington, North Carolina. It is considered one of the only successful examples of a violent overthrow of an existing government and left countless numbers of African-Americans dead and exiled from the city. This event was the spring board for the White Supremacy movement and Jim Crow segregation throughout the state of North Carolina and the American South. This incident has been barely mentioned and has been omitted from most history books. This film tells the true history.
'Wilmington on Fire' stars Larry Reni Thomas, Dr. Lewin Manly, Faye Chaplin, Inez Eason, Dr. Umar Johnson, William Darity Jr., LeRae Umfleet, Kent Chatfield, Queen Quet, Sonya Patrick, and Daawud Muhammad
