Landmark Lecture: Identity, Trauma & Reconciliation: A Conversation with Descendants
October 10 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDTFree
Documentary filmmaker and founder of History Before Us, Frederick Murphy, hosts a conversation with descendants of enslaved individuals associated with Tudor Place and other historic sites with a history of enslavement. The event will consider the vitality of descendant communities, intergenerational identity, historical trauma and reconciliation. His first film, the award-winning The American South as We Know It, explored the lives of survivors of Jim Crow and those didn’t make the headlines. Mr. Murphy is a graduate of Tennessee State University & Bethune-Cookman University with a masters degree in Transformative Leadership. He is also a licensed Clinical Mental Health Therapist.
