Resilience, Recovery, and Rebirth: Sustaining Hope in Trying Times

Monday, December 5, 2022

The African-American experience, though broad in its scope, is often funneled through the history of American slavery, Reconstruction, Jim Crow, and the Civil Rights Movement. These historical epochs are examined in the documentary Resilience, Recovery, & Rebirth: Finding Hope in Trying Times. Beginning with the broader story, Horace Scruggs, the film’s producer, interviews historians, story tellers, and local activists to shed light on the national African-American history and ends with the local Fluvanna County experience. Each of these historical periods are punctuated with musical performances by the Scruggs led band Odyssey of Soul. Historical accounts blended with expressive musical performances allows the viewer to gain both the knowledge of these times and the emotional impact it had on the African-American community.
