Join us for a catered dinner and screening of Kasi Lemmons’ 2019 film Harriet. From her escape from slavery in 1849 Maryland through the dangerous missions she led to liberate hundreds of other enslaved Americans through the Underground Railroad, Harriet tells the real-life story of abolitionist Harriet Tubman. Following the film, we will hold a discussion to think consider Lemmons’ adaptation of Tubman’s life as well as the effect of her legacy on Black feminism and racial justice today. The dinner and screening are free and open to all.
