The Colfax Massacre

Development of a feature-length film about a Reconstruction-era conflict between southern whites and African Americans and its legal and social legacy.

This project explores the history of the 1873 Colfax Massacre, the subsequent Supreme Court case U.S. vs. Cruikshank and their effect on the political rights of the South’s black population and the ultimate fate of Reconstruction.
