North Carolina's Cone Textile Corporation was a world leader in textile manufacturing for much of the 20th century. Beth Davison, professor of sociology and co-director of documentary film services at Appalachian State University, will screen her documentary about the Cone family and local textile workers who helped make Cone Mills the world's largest producer of denim.
"The Denim Dynasty" includes interviews with Cone family members, mill villagers, and historians, and includes many images from Greensboro Historical Museum Archives.
