Synopsis

African American Sons and Daughters of Bethania, North Carolina traces the history of the original freedmen and their descendants in this small North Carolina community. Using interviews, letters, photographs and historical documents, it tells the story of how a newly freed people built their community following the Civil War. Their place of worship, originally established as a Black Moravian Church, joined the African Methodist Episcopal Zion denomination. Community members with meager resources went about the business of educating their children, creating self-help societies, building their own homes and developing and displaying their agricultural and homemaking skills. From its humble origins an economically self-sufficient community developed that would send forth many of its descendants to higher education and successful careers.
