Video: Black Russians: The Red Experience (Kickstarter Trailer)

This is a surprising twist in history - the story of black Americans who left the USA in the 1920s and 30s for the most unlikely of places, Stalin’s USSR. They left racism and segregation behind in their homeland seeking a better life in a new country – Communist Russia. Their descendants now living in Russia and America tell their story.

To what extent did those travelers find what they were looking for? It shows how people facing the unknown, driven by their dreams can make difficult choices and challenge reality. It has a relevance to what the world experiences today.
