Resistance Action East Bay and KPFA Radio Bring Uplifting Documentary “The Long Shadow” to Oakland
Join this special one-time screening of a film that explores the origins and legacy of Slavery, White Supremacy and the political role of the South.
The Long Shadow is a gripping new feature-length documentary on the origins and legacy of slavery. Filmmaker and investigative journalist Frances Causey, a daughter of the South, set out to explore her personal family history of slaveholding. Her investigation traces slavery's history from America's founding up through its insidious ties to racism today.
Indivisible Affiliate Resistance Action East Bay (RAEB) is a local group promoting active citizenship, and is hosting this event. This showing of the film is being co-sponsored by KPFA radio.
