Event Details

“The Trial of Ben Barry” (33 minutes) An estranged son, in and out of prison for twenty years but now a changed man, returns home to help his elderly father confront and face up to the mistakes of his past — including the killing of a voter’s rights organizer 35 years earlier — leading to both men’s reconciliation, redemption and salvation. Filmmaker Shea E. Butler.

“Mr. Stokes’ Mission” (30 minutes)  A half-hour documentary about Civil Rights activist and educator John A. Stokes. On April 23, 1951, Stokes, then president of his senior class at the Robert Russo Moton High School in Farmville Virginia, helped organize and lead a walkout by students to protest inferior conditions for his fellow African-American students. His efforts contributed to the landmark Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court ruling three years later, which banned segregation in public education.
