The next Reel Time film, Descendant, was recommended by Abigails who were fortunate to see it this past year at the Savannah Film Festival. It has been described as “ a fantastically compelling example of how history can be reclaimed” and “a stirring tribute to the resilient community” who kept the story alive through its oral history. It is about the last known slave ship to come to the United States many decades after the prohibition ending the importation of slaves in 1808.
This important film examines how our national history has been “white-washed” and how it is important for us all to be mindful of the fact that the history we learned in school may not be truthful or the full story.
Please join us to view the film and to discuss the issues it raises, on January 12, at 3pm at the home of Annette Carnow, 16 Robert Reid Court. Seating is limited, so please register to attend.
