On November 10, 1898, a statewide white supremacy campaign came to a head in Wilmington, North Carolina. The city experienced a massacre and locally elected officials were removed from office. The Red Cape, released in 2016, is a haunting, dramatic, depiction of these events. See the film (40 min) and learn more about the history and events of 1898 from Dr. Jan Davidson, Cape Fear Museum’s historian.
