For my readers interested in the 2011 flood, and its effects on African-American populations in the region and Mississippi County/New Madrid County, Missouri, you may want to check this out.
Taking Pinhook, a documentary about Pinhook and its displaced residents, was screened for the first time last night at an event that was part of the University of Missouri Black Studies Department’s Black History Month Series. Several displaced Pinhook residents were in attendance including Debra Tarver and Aretha Robinson.
Check back soon to see video clips from the Q and A as well as excerpts from the film.
