In the African-American History Month debut screening of the 2018 film Walk on the River- A Black History of the Alamo City, the filmmakers take the time to share and speak live at St. Philip’s College about both the history and the contributions African Americans have made to the fabric of San Antonio from emancipation to the present time. In their St. Philip’s College debut, producer Baba Aundar Ma’at (a U.S. Air Force veteran) and director Born Logic Allah co-chronicle the path of freed Blacks establishing communities, churches and schools in the 1800’s to thriving Black owned businesses that flourished during the Jim Crow era. The audience will join in conversation on religion, politics, education, social organizations and community all in an attempt to paint a vivid picture of life for Black San Antonian’s in the past to help create a knowledge base, a sense of pride and a blueprint for the next generations moving forward. Be prepared to see St. Philip’s College represented well in the film, and to learn about its self-financing business model.
