DESCRIPTION
Hope is 30 years old and fighting to save her historic African American neighborhood from encroachment by an elite white fraternity, one known to fly a Confederate flag and hold an annual antebellum parade. On one block in Athens GA two communities steeped in history – one black, one white – strive to keep their respective legacies relevant in a changing American South, and the nation as a whole. “Old South” provides a window into the underlying dynamics of race relations that influence so many American communities. And ultimately inspires hope, reflection, and a crucial step forward.
