Black Professional Zone

This historical documentary film was inspired by the African American Walking Tour of my hometown of Westfield, New Jersey. Film is focused on the lives of people who lived and worked in The Black Professional Zone from the 1920s to the 1970s. These “hidden figures” served both black and white residents of Westfield for over 50 years.
