A massacre kept secret for over 100 years. Now the truth will finally be revealed.
THE FILM: Wilmington on Fire is a feature-length documentary that will give a historical and present day look at the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. The film features interviews from historians, authors, activists and descendants of the victims of the Wilmington Massacre of 1898.
THE HISTORY: 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 (coup d'etat) and left countless numbers of African-American citizens 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 is barely mentioned and has been omitted from most history books. It was not until 2006, after the North Carolina General Assembly published a report on it, that the tragedy became known to the public.
ABOUT THE DIRECTOR: Christopher Everett is an actor, writer, director and producer. He has a degree in Graphic Design from King's College in Charlotte, NC. He recently finished his first documentary short entitled "The Laurinburg Institute Est. 1904" on a historic African-American Boarding & Day School in his hometown of Laurinburg, NC. Christopher has also starred in many commercials throughout the south east and indie films such as the award-winning narrative short “On My Last Breath”.
Teaser Trailer & Preview Trailer
Many are aware of the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma as that was called the Black Wall Street of it's time. From May 30 - June 1, 1921 that section of Tulsa went up in flames as a result of whites being intimidated by the success of blacks. As a result the white community came and burned Greenwood, Tulsa, OK down. HOWEVER, before the massacre at Greenwood, there's a little known history of it's predecessor - the massacre at Wilmington, NC.
The Wilmington Massacre of 1898 or the Wilmington Race Riot of 1898, occurred in Wilmington, NC starting on November 10, 1898 into the following days; it is considered a turning point in North Carolina politics following Reconstruction. Journey with Tabitha Vinson as she interviews film director Christopher Everett as we discuss his documentary film Wilmington on Fire!
Wilmington on Fire is a documentary regarding a race riot - act of white terrorism - which destroyed the black community of Wilmington, North Carolina.
Occurring in 1898 - just after Reconstruction - the race riot destabilized the black community and essentially allowed the whites to maintain an iron grip.
Christopher Everett has directed the documentary - Wilmington on Fire - to chronicle the tragedy and its aftermath...an overlooked eyesore of American history. The Wilmington tragedy is particularly stirring because the town was essentially a black mecca and was...conquered by white supremacists.
Everett's documentary features several activists, historians, and civic leaders...among them is internationally renowned Dr. Claude Anderson, the author of Powernomics. Through his tireless research, Dr. Anderson has always maintained that white supremacy flourished to the economic detriment of Black Americans.
Wilmington on Fire is a major documentary and shouldn't be missed. The aftermath of the race riot has had a lasting impact in not just North Carolina, but the entire country.

“When the universe sends you a miracle, and then asks you to surrender to the journey that is about to unfold, you have two choices. You can politely say thanks-but no-thanks, or you can commit your heart and soul to doing something entirely on faith... Breathing Fire, began as a book for others who, like author Chris Davis, had survived childhood abuse, but it quickly transformed into a modern-day fairy tale.
As women, we need to talk openly about topics that have been kept in locked boxes on the shelf. There is no need to feel shame for something that happened that we had no control over. I support courageous women like Chris who not only survive, but empower others to transform their lives to be happy.
When you have done ALL to stand the Apostle Paul said ... STAND. Sometimes life can really throw a few curve balls and some fast balls as well. But in order to be able to hit a homerun and make it to home plate you have to hit that ball (trouble) hard with the word of God make sure to place hit at the area in focus the run with all fire and vigor through the bases (the Bible) until you make home.
You may get stuck on base, strike out or even get put out. But you don't give up you step up to the plate and you swing hit again until you have overcome that obstacle or you loose the game.
.Life is not about giving up... it's about winning and you can only win in God. When others see you as a loss God sees you as a win win. Whatever is broken if you break your bat, pick up a new one start over in God and push it to the limit. You will find there is No Limit in God. He will carry you on to home plate by His Angels that are in the Outfield.
Allow the word of God to rebuild in you what you seem to think as lost in HIs word.
