This documentary project is on the historic town of Hobson City, Alabama. The documentary focuses on what led to the establishment of Alabama’s first incorporated city founded and governed by African Americans just 34 years after slavery was abolished; the origin of Calhoun County Training School; once the only school where black boys and girls living in the county could receive a high school education, and midcentury community progression to current efforts to preserve the town’s history, empower the people, and revitalize the community.
