The Long Shadow: A special film screening event and conversation in recognition of Juneteenth
Time: All Day
Location: Online (From Your Home)
Director Frances Causey, former CNN Senior Producer, TED contributor, and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker presents her award-winning PBS documentary, The Long Shadow. She traces her family’s legacy of white privilege, placing it in the context of the history of anti-black racism in the United States that began with slavery and continues to impact our society today. Watch as Director Frances Causey and Producer Sally Holst passionately seek the hidden truth and untold stories of how America–guided by the South’s powerful political influence–steadily, deliberately, and at time secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture, and economy. This is a streamed event and can be viewed from Friday, June 4 through Friday, June 11, 2021 anytime from the following link: http://thelongshadowfilm.com/main
There will be a special live question and answer session on June 9 from 7 to 8 pm with Frances Causey via Zoom. To participate in the conversation, you can register on the screening page linked above.
This event is collectively sponsored by participating libraries – members of the MAIN consortium.
