North Town explores the once segregated black community in Mesa, Arizona from the early 1900’s to the 1980’s. The documentary highlights this small community now known as the Washington–Escobedo Park Neighborhood, and introduces the audience to residents from the past and present. Their stories and experiences include the national Civil Rights Movement, professional sports, activism, politics, churches, and the reality of racism.

Bruce Nelson is an Award winning actor/filmmaker, as well as a respected producer and performer within the theater and film industry in Arizona. Growing up in a small black community in Mesa, Nelson’s childhood included attending the segregated Booker T. Washington elementary school, pitching watermelons, picking cotton, and swimming in local canals.

Cost: $10 General Public / $8 AHS Members
