Being Black in small town America

"The film strikes an interesting balance when Tucker Bounds' subjects, including her own father, carefully indicate that racism stretches beyond the boundaries of what residents view of [Black community members]"

As the US continues to reflect upon its history of racial injustice, it is critical that the daily realities of Black life be taken into consideration in order to inform a path forward. Crossroads Stories offers just such an opportunity, as Black residents of Columbus, Indiana share their experiences growing up in the "crossroads of America". Even in a town that self-identifies as progressive, clear themes develop across all the stories of what it is to constantly be seen as a "subject," and the ways in which that informs their lives and outlook. Also featuring interviews with community organizers working to build more equitable communities, Crossroads Stories will find audiences identifying with and learning from this vital dispatch from the nation's heartland.
