Following the Civil War, All-Black towns emerged in what is now modern-day Oklahoma. Initially founded in an effort to convince the United States to create an All-Black state, most of these towns have since been swallowed up by nearby counties and cities. A few cling heroically to life. Struggle & Hope gives voice to the stories of the last remaining residents of these towns, while charting their fight to ensure their towns retain independence, character and hope for a better future.
