In October 1995, photographer Kendall Messick and his friend Brenda Parker Hunt visited her hometown of Corapeake in Gates County to take some photographs of her relatives. What he discovered were faces and images he felt compelled to preserve on film. Over the next seven years he shot thousands of pictures of Corapeake's African American elders and spent countless hours recording their memories. The result was a documentary film, called \"Corapeake,\" that combines the recorded voices with the still images of the town's current and former residents.
