18 | Project 1619 African Diaspora Film Festival

Project 1619 African Diaspora Film FestivalThe  African Landing Commemoration Day Festival continues on Friday, August 18 with the Project 1619 African Diaspora Film Festival. The feature is American Denial, a film that sheds light on the unconscious political and moral world of modern Americans, using archival footage, newsreels, nightly news reports, and rare southern home movies from the ‘30s and ‘40s, as well as research footage, websites, and YouTube films showing psychological testing of racial attitudes. Exploring “stop-and-frisk” practices, the incarceration crisis, and racially-patterned poverty, the film features a wide array of historians, psychologists, and sociologists who offer expert insight and share their own personal, unsettling stories. The result is a unique and provocative film that challenges our assumptions about who we are and what we really believe. The film event will also include a panel discussion following the film.
