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.
