Soul Trak Event Details
Please join us for a film screening of 'An American Ascent' on February 18th @6pm
AN AMERICAN ASCENT is a documentary film about the first African-American expedition to climb North America's highest peak, Denali.
In only a few decades the United States will become a majority-minority nation, as people of color will outnumber today's white majority for the first time ever. Yet, a staggering number of people in this soon-to-be majority do not consider the outdoors a place for them. By taking on the grueling, 20,310 foot peak of the continent's biggest mountain, nine African-American climbers set out to shrink this adventure by building a legacy of inclusion in the outdoor/adventure community.
The film addresses often overlooked issues of race and the outdoors as it follows the team up the mountain, chronicling the many challenges of climbing one of the worlds most iconic peaks.
Produced and Directed by George Potter & Andy Adkins
Written by Andy Adkins & James Mills.
