Bridging the Divide

Community members are invited for the screenings of Share Crop by Claudia Stack and The American South As We Know It by Frederick Murphy who will also be available to discuss how to recognize historical trauma in the political present. This community conversation is an opportunity to share experiences and bridge the divide that often keeps such conversations private and within a family unit rather than the public sphere. Join us to start the conversation and build community from 1-3:30 pm.
