Northtown: Heritage of a Black Community
North Town explores the once segregated black community in Mesa, Arizona from in the early 1900’s to the 1980’s. North Town has become known as Washington–Escobedo Park Neighborhood. Mesa, Arizona is the home of the Mesa Mormon Temple, Chicago Cubs Spring Training Camp, thriving Citrus Groves, and at one time Mesa was part Cotton capital of Arizona and World Wide, which, was celebrated each year with the King of Kotton Karnival Parade. During this documentary we will examine this small community and visit with some of the residents past and present to discover their experiences and connection to the national Civil Rights Movement, professional sports, politics, churches, and racism in Mesa, Arizona and America.
