Banished vividly recounts the forgotten history of racial cleansing in America when thousands of African Americas were driven from their homes & communities by violent racist mobs in the late 19th & early 20th centuries. In fear for their lives, black people left these towns & never returned to reclaim their property. The film features black families determined to go to any length to reconstruct their families past & gain some justice for their ancestors & themselves.
