The Black Cinema Series

In Partnership with the Little Theatre Presents: Black Border Warriors
Black Border Warriors: The Seminole Negro Indian Scouts weaves a historical tapestry about a unique band of African Americans, the Black Seminole. The documentary highlights the epic saga of freedom-seeking Black people beginning in the late 1700s and early 1800s, when small groups of fugitive slaves went into Spanish Florida, lived near the Seminole Native America tribe, co-mingled and allied with them as they fought a series of Seminole Wars against the U.S. military, which was trying to preserve slavery and take Florida from Spain. In 1870, they are recruited to Texas by the U.S. military to form a commando unit called the Seminole Negro Indian Scouts. There will be a discussion with executive producers Nate Brown and Mikhail Gershteyn after the screening.

The Little Theatre will screen Black Border Warriors at 6:30 p.m. May 17.
