Description

Our third silent film collection continues with another film from Oscar Micheaux, who worked tirelessly to create a cinematic foundation for other African Americans to build on. He explored racism in the United States through powerful moving images. The Symbol of the Unconquered is the story of a black woman who inherits land from her grandfather and then must battle the Ku Klux Klan when they learn the land is a vast oil reserve. 

The Preservery is hosting in their dining room, so you’ll have a wonderful selection of menu items and beverages from which to choose.
