About the film

Dulatown is a documentary short about a community in Lenoir, NC established from the land of a slave owner (Alfred Dula) bequeathed to his slave (Harriet) and their eight children. Dulatown remains home to the extended Dula clan and embraces its history at a bi-annual reunion where in recent years both African-American and White Dula relatives come together around their shared genealogy to acknowledge they have more in common than just a surname. Using contemporary interviews with members of the Dula family alongside historical images, this film weaves an insightful tale of history, family, race and identity.
