Product Detail:

Chairman Jones—An Improbable Leader, a  historical documentary film directed and produced by Durham filmmaker Anna Jones, is now available onDVD at Ngozi Designs.

The film tells the story of Anna’s father, James Henry Jones, a self-educated farmer who disregards racism and lack of education to lead the fight to end nearly a century of education inequality in Northampton County, NC during the 1950s and 60s. After freeing himself from Jim Crow sharecropping in the 1950s, Jones launches a campaign to free black children from Jim Crow education.

He places his own children on the front line, brings blacks and whites together for dialog, helps integration tip toe into Northampton, and transforms the educational landscape for everyone.  His leadership as North Carolina’s first black school board chairman introduces a new era in education and has a marked effect on racial progress in the state.

The story unfolds through his daughter’s conversations with those across North Carolina who participated in the integration movement and witnessed his extraordinary courage and leadership.

“…The story of your father’s life is so inspiring and uplifting. You honor his memory and legacy beautifully and sensitively…I got a feel of the place, the people and the time and was moved by it all…a truly memorable film.”  —Vicki Scott
