Summary, etc.:
Since its origin in 1859, the song Dixie's Land has been woven into the fabric of American pop culture. Originally penned as a tune for blackface minstrel troupes, the song became the anthem of the confederacy during the Civil War. Adopted by segregationists during the civil rights movement, the song was protested by students during the 60's and 70's. The song has virtually vanished from college campuses throughout the United States, but younger artists, both black and white are reinterpreting the song and redefining the meaning of the song in the 21st Century. The song's meaning, much like the history of the U.S., is conflicted and controversial. Join Intersection Films as they take you on a journey through two centuries of U.S. history through America's most dangerous song.
