This award-winning film, narrated by Whoopi Goldberg, examines a little known aspect of African American history, when newly freed slaves throughout the South formed benevolent societies to respond to abject hunger, illness and the fear of a pauper's grave. But with time The Fair Hope Benevolent Society eventually struggles with a gradual loss of tradition. This special encore screening will feature a post-film discussion.
