Set against 400 years of suffering, healing, and strength, with a backdrop of our nation's most storied lands, the innumerable contributions of African Americans to the foundation of the United States are recognized in this short film. "Twenty & Odd" serves as a visual tool to inform, highlight and educate the nation as a whole about the trauma, resilience, and beauty of the African American experience in our country through the lens of sites stewarded by the National Park Service.
We are thankful for our volunteer cast members who have helped make this film possible!
