You are invited to attend an advanced screening of The Long Shadow, a powerful documentary about the origins and legacy of slavery.

Investigative journalist Frances Causey explores her family history of slave holding, tracing slavery's history from America's founding through its insidious ties to racism today.

Following the screening, there will be a "Let's Be Clear" conversation about the divisive and lasting effects of racism, slavery and white privilege in order to build greater understanding and acceptance.
