Join us for a free showing of the movie American Ascent at the Hugh Morton Amphitheater at Greenfield Lake

A documentary film about the first African-American expedition to tackle North America's highest peak, Denali. By taking on the grueling, 20,310 foot peak of the continent's biggest mountain, nine African-American climbers set out to build a legacy of inclusion in the outdoor/adventure community.  The film addresses often overlooked issues of race and the outdoors as it follows the team up the mountain, chronicling the many challenges of climbing one of the world’s most iconic peaks.

This is film is sponsored by the City of Wilmington’s Outdoor Recreation Program and is free and open to the public. Outdoor vendors will be on the grounds to showcase what is available in the Wilmington and New Hanover County region.
