Description
Summary:Produced by Filmanthropic, this provocative, Award winning feature film dramatizes the historic attempt to force assimilation of American Indians and African Americans at Southern Negro Colleges in the late 1800s. The little-known period provides a dramatic backdrop for a compelling interracial love story. At its heart, "UnBowed" is a story about courage - the courage to love, even when it's forbidden; the courage to endure when the social, economic or cultural environment changes; and the courage to be different and forge a singular path in a society that demands conformity.
