I would suggest that UNCW could have produced a film that actually had relevance in today's time frame.
The 1898 project, with whatever motivation, is speculation and unverifiable. Each side has an opinion, with some historical details.
Instead of this project, UNCW students could have done a project detailing slavery today, as more and more young black men are slaves to drugs, and the crimes that go along with it.
The self-induced slavery of crime and drugs have killed more black men than racist's and bigots ever could.
Such a project would not be as popular, but would have been immensely more informative and useful as opposed to 1898.
We all know of the inequities of the past, but a generation of today could use a reality check in the areas of drugs, crime, and responsibility, something that is seriously lacking today.
