Documentary Screening with Director/Producer Barbara Reina

February 15, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Join us for a screening of the documentary “Brought to Light: Unearthing the History of an African-American Cemetery in Kinderhook New York” followed by a Q & A with director and producer Barbara Reina.

“BROUGHT TO LIGHT is a story of rediscovery, respect and change. The cleanup efforts by a few villagers of some stone markers in an overgrown field lead to the rediscovery of a forgotten, “slaves’ cemetery” in which hundreds of African-Americans were buried during the 1800s. A portal to the past lives of Kinderhook’s lesser-known non-white population, the documentary explores Black history and the efforts of some Hudson Valley residents to restore respect to the Persons of Color Cemetery.” Learn more at barbarareina.com/kinderhook-documentary
