FROM THE QUARTERS TO LINCOLN HEIGHTS
A documentary by Mark Oliver chronicling the migration of African Americans to Northern CA during the 1920s to work in the expanding lumber industry. The documentary From the Quarters to Lincoln Heights is designed to tell the story of how this large, established African-American population in the small towns of Weed, Mc Cloud, Mt Shasta and Dunsmuir, California came to root themselves in such an unlikely place. Migrating from the southern US in the 1920's to work in some of the world's largest lumber mills, the film will explore how these unique communities of African Americans thrived in these multi-racial rural towns. This film will present this little known history revealing the early inter-racial relationships that existed in Northern California. Produced by Mark Oliver and James Langford.
