Against All the Odds

This documentary is your chance to learn astounding local history through the lens of East St. Louis community members themselves. Historical photographs, archival footage, and interviews of locals who have lived through the tumultuous, rich history of their community leave a lasting, personal impression. East St. Louis exemplifies the ability of a disadvantaged community that has suffered so much strife, including racial conflict such as the riots of 1917 and economic decline from population and industrial shifts, maintained a strong community that produced incredible contributions to American culture through jazz, blues, dance, and more.
