i’ve got several recommendations from friends to watch these documentaries. also i haven’t seen all of them yet i wanna share them with you as well!
1. Searching for Sugarman
This is the story of a musician from Detroit, not famous at all in his hometown, but famous in South Africa, where people went to search for him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWCoGhaS4Es
2. Local Color – The history of racism in Oregon
This documentary chronicles the little known history of racism in Oregon and the moving story of people, both black and white, who worked for civil rights. There are moments of highly disturbing racism in a state not known for diversity. But there are also moments of inspiration and courage as people take a stand to bring about important change. http://watch.opb.org/video/1593884540/
And here is a text written about the White Utopia the KKK had in Oregon: Oregon was found as a racist utopia! http://gizmodo.com/oregon-was-founded-as-a-racist-utopia-1539567040?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000047
