    WILMINGTON ON FIRE - A Chat w/ Christopher Everett

    in Culture

    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.

    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.

    From The Front Porch with Professor Carl Tone Jones

    in History

    This week on The Porch we will be interviewing Christopher Everett, writer and director of the upcoming documentary, Wilmington On Fire.....


    WILMINGTON ON FIRE is a feature-length documentary that will give a historical and present day look at 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 (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. The film features interviews from historians, authors, activists and descendants of the victims of the Wilmington Massacre of 1898. © 2011 Christopher Everett


    Be sure to tune in this week as we discuss the next important documentary to drop as we continue unvail how the system of white supremacy sprung new roots from this act of macabre.
