Community Cornerstones: African Americans in Montgomery County 

Community Cornerstones, an hour-long documentary produced by Heritage Montgomery, presents reminiscences by elders from 5 historic African American churches. Taken together, their words explain how these communities developed, illustrate life in segregated times, and convey their pride in the accomplishments of their ancestors. Because music is such an integral part of the African American experience, choirs associated with each featured church perform on the soundtrack.
