SYNOPSIS: Among the wealth of untold American stories is that of the rise and slow disappearance of all-black towns that sprung up in the American West following the end of the Civil War. Most of these towns have now been swallowed up by nearby counties and cities, or are clinging desperately for their survival. Struggle & Hope mines the stories of the last-remaining residents of several all-black towns in Oklahoma, while charting their efforts to ensure their towns aren't lost to history.
