Wilmington on Fire: Film Access

the Wilmington Race riot was a turning point in North Carolina history. Following the election of 1898, a white mob overthrew Wilmington, N.C.’s legitimately elected government, destroyed the local Black-owned newspaper office and terrorized the African American community. The mob chased Black officials and community leaders out of the city and killed many African Americans in widespread attacks. Because of this incident, more than 2,000 Black residents left the city permanently, turning it from a Black-majority to a white-majority city.
