*Post-screening film discussion with director Frances Causey via Skype and Georgette Grier-Key, Ed.D. live at the cinema.

Georgette Grier-Key, Ed.D. –  Dr. Grier-Key is currently the Executive Director and Curator of Eastville Community Historical Society of Sag Harbor, New York, the Vice President of the Association of Suffolk County Historical Societies, Cultural Partner for Sylvester Manor of Shelter Island, New York, and guest curator at various outlets, namely the Sara Nightingale Gallery of Watermill, New York and the Suffolk County Historical Society of Riverhead, New York.  She is also an advisor to the Long Island Indigenous People Museum and Research Institute.

Of all the divisions in America, none is as insidious and tenacious as racism. In this powerful documentary, director Frances Causey investigates the roots of our current racial conflicts. Causey and Long Shadow producer Sally Holst, both daughters of the South, were raised with a romanticized vision of America’s past. Haunted by the truth of slavery's legacy in their own histories, they passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories that reveal how the sins of yesterday feed modern prejudice, which burns undiminished despite our seeming progress.
