Screening- The American South As We Know It
Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture at Levine Center for the Arts
August 28 is a day of historical significance in Black America – from the murder of Emmett Till in 1955 to the March on Washington in 1963 to the day that President Barack Obama became the first African-American to accept the Democratic nomination in 2008.
Join the Gantt Center in commemorating this important date in history with the screening of The American South As We Know It, a documentary by Frederick Murphy. The film explores the lives and experiences of African-Americans during the Jim Crow era and depicts a time when racial tensions were at their peak.
Educators, historians and brave “everyday” people share their stories and create a comprehensive narrative of what life was like for African- Americans in the south. Murphy will host a talkback with the audience following the film and discuss how this work can be used to address historical trauma.
