Once Upon a Time…When We Were Colored
and Discussion with Clifton Taulbert, Author

Experience an America that remains only in the hearts and minds of those who were brought up in this small southern community. Lost in the sweat of the cotton fields and hidden in the juke joints of Muddy Water blues, the people of Glen Allan nurtured and protected each other while celebrating life to the fullest.

Based on the critically acclaimed book by Clifton L. Taulbert, ONCE UPON A TIME... WHEN WE WERE COLORED chronicles the author's coming-of-age in the segregated South in a time when the Ku Klux Klan terrorized the streets and "White's Only" were among the first words learned by African American children. Clifton was encouraged by the love and kinship of the tightly knit community to overcome the bigotry and intolerance of the South, allowing him to embark on an extraordinary journey.

Starring: Al Freeman Jr, Phylicia Rashad, Leon, Paula Kelly, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Anna Maria Horsford, Bernie Casey, Isaac Hayes....)
