African American History Month Celebration 2015
February 5

Black Life in Indiantown Documentary Video

Nabb Center Gallery 


The children of sharecroppers, African-Americans who grew up in the Indiantown area around Handsell, north of Vienna, MD, tell their stories about growing up in rural Dorchester County.  Families with names like Pinder, Jackson, Jolley and Chase talk about their schools, churches and jobs on the farm that led to further education and professional careers.  This documentary about growing up during the time of segregation in the early to mid-20th century captures the voices from the past and preserves them for future generations.  The film is a project of the Nanticoke Historic Preservation alliance and is funded in part by a grant from the Maryland Council Humanities.  Sponsored by the Nabb Research Center.  For more information, call 410-543-6312.
