A trailer for a documentary shot on my Canon 7D, for the men and women of Mars Hill, North Carolina – both alive and gone.
"Where the pavement ends on Mount Olive Road, there stands a remnant of a bygone era. Peeking out from numerous sapling trees and a few stray vines, the remains of the Long Ridge School are not that different from numerous other simple, boxy schoolhouses that once dotted the hills of Appalachia.
The Long Ridge School, a now abandoned structure, was once the place of learning for black children who were not given the right to go to school with white children. The brave and unappreciated students of the school had to endure lower quality education and sacrifice the comforts that white school children had, including running water and heat.
Now in their 80’s and 90's, these men and women are speaking out to the community to help save their history and to remember the struggles and pain they had to go through, to get an education in the early 20th century."
