The Fillmore (1999), an Emmy-winning PBS documentary, tells the dramatic story -- the rise and fall (and rise again?) of San Francisco's premier Black community, as it faced urban renewal.
The film chronicles neighborhood history, including the 1906 earthquake, the World War II removal of Japanese citizens, & the tumultuous 1960's. A discussion with film maker Peter L. Stein to follow.
