Event description

Description


The Avery Institute and the Avery Research Center for African American History and Culture will present a free screening of An Outrage, a new documentary film about lynching, on Tuesday, October 10, at 6:00 p.m at the Avery Center. The event, part of the Race and Social Justice Initiative at the College of Charleston, will include a post-screening discussion with the filmmakers, joined by Dr. Willie Griffin, Professor of History at The Citadel, and Dr. Mari Crabtree, Professor of African American Studies at the College of Charleston.

AN OUTRAGE is a documentary film about lynching in the American South. Filmed on-location at lynching sites in six states and bolstered by the memories and perspectives of descendants, community activists, and scholars, this unusual historical documentary seeks to educate even as it serves as a hub for action to remember and reflect upon a long-hidden past.

The screening and discussion is free and open to the public
