Tuesday, March 3, at 6:30 PM Traces of the Trade: A Story from the Deep North A woman discovers that her New England ancestors were the largest slave trading family in U.S. history. She and nine fellow descendents set off to retrace the Triangle Trade: from their historic home in Rhode Island to slave forts in Ghana to sugar plantations in Cuba. Step by step they uncover the vast Northern complicity in slavery, while stumbling and stretching their way through the minefield of contemporary race relations.
Tuesday, March 24, at 6:30 PM Jim Crow of the North The roots of racial disparities are seen through a new lens in this film that explores the origins of housing segregation in the Minneapolis area. Using the same methods, land developers and government joined hands to segregate Northern cities across the country. The film also illustrates how Black families resisted and built community – within and despite – the red lines created by restrictive covenants.
Tuesday, April 21, at 6:30 PM Tale of Two Schools: Race & Education in Long Island We follow David and Owen, two African American teenagers during their senior year of high school. Though the students have a lot in common, they go to very different schools. The film spotlights these differences and the results of educational disparities, while noting the benefits that diversity provides for all students.Venue: Plymouth Church
