Self-Evident Truths: A Program on Anti-Racist History
A Video Screening and Talkback on Zoom
Historic Northampton is pleased to present a screening of two video episodes from Self-Evident Media’s series of educational resources. “One Minute’s Freedom” is about Elizabeth “Mumbet” Freeman and the abolition of slavery in Massachusetts and “The Truth is Powerful” (premiere), examines two public versions of Sojourner Truth’s most famous speech, often referred to as “Ain’t I a Woman?”, delivered in 1851. Each video is about 12 minutes long.
Following the screenings, Professor Ousmane Power-Greene will moderate a discussion with the scholars, filmmakers, and educators who produced the series: Jellissa Lacon, Michael Lawrence-Riddell, Chrishaunda Lee Perez, and Bayeté Ross Smith. For more information on the speakers, click here.
