Film Screening: Brought to Light

February 24 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
Join Filmmaker and writer Barbara Reina for a screening of the local documentary: Brought to Light: Unearthing the History of an African-American Cemetery in Kinderhook, NY. Brought to Light is the story of rediscovery, respect, and change. The cleanup efforts by a few villagers of some stone markers in an overgrown field lead to the rediscovery of a forgotten "slaves' cemetery" in which hundreds of African-Americans were buried during the 1800s. A portal to the past lives of Kinderhook's lesser-known non-white population, the documentary explores Black history and the efforts of some Hudson Valley residents to restore respect to the Persons of Color Cemetery. Contributions toward the making of the documentary will be accepted at this event and DVDs will be available for sale. [embed]https://youtu.be/A7c5Lr23rzI[/embed]..Read More
