RECONSTRUCTION: AMERICA AFTER THE CIVIL WAR
Dir. Julia Marchesi | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2019 | 60 min.
Presented by series writer, executive producer, and host Henry Louis Gates, Jr.
Join professor, author, historian, and filmmaker Henry Louis Gates, Jr., as he shares clips from his four-part PBS series exploring the transformative years after the Civil War, when the nation struggled to rebuild itself in the face of profound loss, massive destruction, and revolutionary social change. One of the most important and consequential chapters in American history is also among the most overlooked, misunderstood, and misrepresented. The twelve years of the post-war Reconstruction era signalled a seismic shift in our democracy.
