Mesa, Arizona is the home of the Mesa Mormon Temple, Chicago Cubs Spring Training Camp, thriving Citrus Groves, and at one time Mesa was part Cotton capital of Arizona and World Wide, which, was celebrated each year with the King of Kotton Karnival Parade. However, unknown is the black community living in a small pocket area of Mesa from 1920’s through the late 1980’s and what is now known as the Washington Park Neighborhood. During this documentary we will examine this small community and visit with some of the residents past and present to discover their experiences and connection to the national Civil Rights Movement, professional sports, politics, churches, and racism in Mesa, Arizona and America.

There will be a Q& A with the filmmaker following the screening.
