This independent film, written, directed and produced by Julie Dash, was the first feature film directed by an African American woman distributed theatrically in the United States. Set in 1902, it tells the story of three generations of Gullah or Geechee women in the Peazant family on St. Helena Island as they prepare to migrate to the North on the mainland. Notable for its lush cinematography and nonlinear storytelling, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.
