“Abbeville, a documentary that illuminates the lasting impact of racial terror lynchings. The film follows community members committed to spreading the truth about the lynching of Anthony Crawford, an African American businessman who was lynched 100 years ago in the town square of Abbeville, South Carolina, after asking for a fair price for cottonseed. We learn from Doria Dee Johnson, his direct descendant, that his family still feels the effects of this act of terror. We hope you will watch and share this important story.”
