When good ol’ boy D’aron Davenport lets it slip that his hometown in Georgia hosts an annual Civil War reenactment, his new friends at UC Berkeley plan to stage a protest in the form of a “performative intervention.” Armed with youthful exuberance and misguided ideas of the South, the intervention goes badly awry. With a sincere heart, Welcome to Braggsville intimately explores how all Americans are linked to — and culpable in — the country’s racial injustices.
