“In the Face of What We Remember: Oral Histories of 409 and 555 Edgecombe Avenue” chronicles the fascinating history of the renowned movers and shakers who lived/live in two of Sugar Hill’s most iconic apartment buildings. Captured on film, the buildings’ elders share memories of their famous neighbors, including W.E.B. Du Bois, Madam Stephanie St. Clair, Aaron Douglass, Thurgood Marshall, and a myriad of others whose cultural and political legacies influenced the entire world. The documentary puts "everyday" faces on these celebrated men and women, who symbolize courage, strength, leadership, and commitment.
