End of Old Days

film by Shaun Scott

This 13 minute film explores a century of African American community growth and civil rights activism in Seattle. It begins with the “Black Victorians” who formed a tiny community in the 1890s, moves throught the forging of a more sizeable black community in the early 20th century, and ends with the momentous surge of activism that culminated in the late 1960s. “The End Of Old Days” is narrated by filmmaker Shaun Scott, features voice actors Josh Shadlen, Lamont Wright and Dan Weiner, and showcases a rousing soundtrack by Evan Flory-Barnes’ Threat of Beauty Orchestra.
