“The Coachman” is a documentary short film about the life (1887 - 1946) of a local African-American domestic worker in Albemarle County, Virginia for one of the area's most distinguished estates. He came from slaves, held a position of prestige, enjoyed love, and endured heartache and loss. He lived through Jim Crow, The Great Depression, Great Migration, WWI, and WWII. And though he died with a less glamorous social status, he built a family of people willing to work hard and strive for greater heights. This film is about researching the past and getting to know your ancestry.
