Searching for Timbuctoo tells the little-known story of a Black settlement established in the wilds of upstate New York that brought together a group of ardent abolitionists willing to risk their fortunes, families, and futures to destroy slavery.

This feature-length documentary reveals the hidden history of this long-lost community and the search for the elusive Timbuctoo settlement. A Q&A session with writer and director Paul A. Miller will follow the film. In-person only.
