8:30 PM Q&A

Join us for the NY premiere of the Sundance award-winning Always in Season and conversation with filmmaker Jacqueline Olive, activist and filmmaker Bree Newsome, and journalist Jamilah Lemieux on building a national movement of racial justice and reconciliation.

In 2014, Lennon Lacy, an African American teen, was found hanging from a swing set in rural North Carolina. Despite inconsistencies in the case, local officials quickly ruled Lennon’s death a suicide. His mother believes he was lynched. The documentary, Always in Season centers a mother’s search for justice for her son - and exposes the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans.

Winner of 7 Jury Prizes at more than 30 film festivals, Always in Season, opens theatrically on September 20th before an extensive community engagement series and broadcast. Join us for this meaningful conversation to launch this national campaign.
