Soul City by Monica Berra, SheRea DelSol and Gini Richards

Learn the story of a group of civil rights activists who attempted to build a multiracial utopia – Soul City – in the heart of North Carolina’s Klan Country in the 1970s. Rich archival material, interviews with former and current Soul City residents, animation and soulful rhythms of the era bring alive the vision of founder Floyd B. McKissick and his band of idealists who, though the odds were stacked against them, risked it all to build the city of their dreams.
