Tap Roots

This 1948 film is a fictionalized version of the story of Newton Knight, who led of group of Southerners who seceded from the Confederacy. Tap Roots was described as "Gone With The Wind for abolitionists," and isn’t all that historically accurate. Knight’s story will be retold again in the new movie Free State of Jones this summer.
