A new era was ushered in with the election of Barack Obama that begs the question “How have issues of race and racism changed in the United States over the last one hundred years?”

The video documentary JIM CROW 2 BARACK OBAMA (JC2BO) features inter-generational conversations between African American elders who are at least 75-years-old having grown up in the now extinct era of Jim Crow and Youth ages 16 through 30.

Our intention for JC2BO is to engage in a constructive, intergenerational conversation about race in America. We will examine the past, access the present and talk about the changes we envision for the future.
