400 Years Later…’free-ish

Saturday, February 8, 2020

In celebration of African American History Month, The Nate Parker Foundation and Slover Library present "400 Years Later…’free-ish." Join us for a screening and discussion of parts III and IV of this four-part docuseries. "400 Years Later…’free-ish" explores the 400-year anniversary of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Virginia in late August 1619. The films capture this epic milestone through the journey of fifteen HBCU students as they explore past and present race relations in the birthplace of American slavery. The documentaries follow the students in their efforts to promote racial healing and reconciliation as they grapple with Virginia’s contentious history and the racial issues these monuments present. Part III Confederate Monuments: Heritage or Hatred? Part IV Monuments that Heal In Room 650.
