Join us for an Online Screening of Walk on the River: A Black History of the Alamo City Feb. 17, 2022@7pm
Join us Thursday February 17, for "Walk on the River: A Black History of the Alamo City." In this independent film we take the time to document both the history and the contributions African-Americans have made to the fabric of San Antonio, Texas from Emancipation to the Civil Rights movement. We chronicle the path of freed Blacks establishing communities, churches and schools in the 1800’s to thriving Black-owned businesses that flourished during the Jim Crow era.
The original Walk on the River, completed in August of 2018 is one of the most successful documentary films in San Antonio, TX. It has helped to educate thousands about the Black Experience here in our city.
***** "The film was Amazing. The level of detail concerning the business community and accounts from the elders was phenomenal! I especially liked the showcase of cooks sold Before the screening. I hope this is shown at a museum for tourists. Great work!!!" - Leslie Thompson (Facebook Review)
We touch on religion, politics, education, social organizations and community all in an attempt to paint a vivid picture of life for Black San Antonians in the past to help create a knowledge base, a sense of pride and a blueprint for the next generations moving forward.
