100 Years Project

100 Years will celebrate the enduring spirits and life histories of the country's oldest African Americans. They have lived through momentous times: two World Wars; the sinking of the Titanic; the Great Depression; the Jazz Age; the birth of the Civil Rights Movement, the life and death of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.; the advent of radio, television, automobiles and airplanes; man's first walk on the moon; the beginning of the Information Age; and the election of America's first black president. And they, like us, have fallen in love, counted fingers and toes of newborn babies, grieved the loss of beloved family and friends, been grandchildren and grandparents. The film will honor the wisdom and experience of these remarkable individuals and the story they tell of our country's racial history. 100 Years will celebrate how far we have come, while recognizing how far we have yet to go.
