Join us Thursday February 9, for “Walk on the River: A Black History of the Alamo City.” In this independent film we take the time to document both the history and the contributions African-Americans have made to the fabric of San Antonio, Texas from Emancipation to the Civil Rights movement. We chronicle the path of freed Blacks establishing communities, churches and schools in the 1800’s to thriving Black-owned businesses that flourished during the Jim Crow era.
The original Walk on the River, completed in August of 2018 is one of the most successful documentary films in San Antonio, TX. It has helped to educate thousands about the Black Experience here in our city.
We touch on religion, politics, education, social organizations and community all in an attempt to paint a vivid picture of life for Black San Antonians in the past to help create a knowledge base, a sense of pride and a blueprint for the next generations moving forward.
“Walk on the River” features interviews from very influential people in our community like:
- Mario Salas
- Ed Glosson
- Dr. Rudyard Hilliard
- Nettie Hinton
- Lon Taylor
- Vera Williams Young
- D.L. Grant
- … and more
