An Exploration of Our History:
North Richmond Part III


Building on the success of the documentary film series produced by Athletes United for Peaceís Digital Technology Academy in North Richmond, the latest chapter is a culmination of work from all three of the previous teen video project crews.  The project was developed by former City of Richmond employee Doug Harris, who is an award winning Bay Area documentary film producer.

Old photoThe documentary begins with a review of Richmond during the boom years of WWII and how African Americans moved out west to seek employment in the Kaiser Shipyards.  During this era of segregation in the East Bay, blacks were relegated to live in the areas many government housing projects, and those that owned homes resided in the unincorporated community of North Richmond.

Through interviews conducted by the teen video crew, several historical accounts are told about the North Richmond community that include:

  • The founding of North Richmondís Neighborhood House, a social service agency that provided employment and training, health and youth services to the residents of the impoverished community.
     

  • The first major protest by the Black Panther Party that was centered around a police brutality case which left a North Richmond residents fatally shot.  The situation led to a series of riots throughout the community and into downtown Richmond.
     

  • The racial tension that plagued Richmond Union High School in the 1960ís that ultimately led to organized and highly publicized protest by black students.
     

  • How the Model Cities Program helped to build the communityís infrastructure with curbs, sidewalks and gutters, and ultimately led to the building of the City of Richmondís Shields-Reid Community Center.
     

The documentary ends with dialogue about the exodus of black leadership from the community in the early 1970ís signaling the beginning of a sharp decline in the quality of life for the residents.

Athletes United for Peace is working to produce the final chapter of the An Exploration of Our History series that will cover the history from 1970ís to the present.
