An American Ascent documents the first African-American expedition to tackle Denali, North America's highest peak and explores the complex relationship many African-Americans have with the outdoors. As the U.S. transitions to a 'minority majority' nation, a staggering number of people of color do not identify with America's wild places. By embarking on the grueling multi-week climb of the 20,327ft Denali, nine African-American climbers set out to bridge this 'adventure gap'— challenging outdated notions of what adventure looks like by changing the face of America's biggest and baddest mountain on the 100th anniversary of its first summit. Presented by Distill Productions and Mercury CSC. (~50 minutes).
