Our film explores the racial trauma and terror associated with these monuments while highlighting the work of youth leader, Zyahna Bryant, who sparked the movement to remove this monument through her organizing work that galvanized leaders and stakeholders across the country. As well as Bryan Stevenson founder of the Equal Justice Initiative and author / inspiration of the recent film Just Mercy.
Please join us in celebrating Junteenth this year by providing a virtual screening of this film followed by a panel discussion with Zyhanna Bryant, the HBCU Storytellers and other community leaders involved in these efforts.
