event information

The Becoming Beloved Community Task Force invites you to a Forum to discuss the 2022 documentary Descendant on September 24 at 11:30 a.m. in the Kennedy Room. This powerful film, directed by Margaret Brown, chronicles the story behind Africatown in Alabama – and the descendants of the last known enslaved Africans brought to the U.S. aboard the Clotilda, as they reclaim their story. You can watch Descendant on Netflix, view a trailer for the film on YouTube, and there is a great seven-minute interview with the directors you can listen to on NPR. Check out this powerful work, and come ready for conversation!
