Bound By Blood: The Elaine Massacre Then & Now

This film exhumes an almost-100-year-old tragedy that took place deep in the Arkansas Delta in which hundreds of black sharecroppers were massacred by white posses and federal troops near the town of Elaine in Phillips County. It examines stories that black and white descendants and townspeople tell about the massacre in their own families and communities, but rarely share across racial divides.
