Banished: American Ethnic Cleansings Synopsis
     Between the 1870s and 1920s a number of U.S. towns purged a portion of their residents and seized their lands. Those driven out were African-Americans, and many of these locales remain virtually all white today. Award-winning filmmaker Marco Williams follows the descendants of those who were expelled as they try to come to terms with their dislocated past and seek a measure of reparation.
