No Longer Silent is an opportunity to highlight significant and historic silent films with live accompaniment from local music talent to create a one of a kind experience. This panel will consist of the first 30 minutes of the film The Symbol of the Unconquered scored and played live by Patrick Johnson, which will be followed by a discussion about the scoring process and the themes and ideas presented in the film lead by Gareth Jones.
“The Symbol of the Unconquered” unmasks the Ku Klux Klan through the story of two neighbors: Evon, a white-passing Black woman, and Hugh, a Black settler who struggles to retain possession of his land as the KKK provoke violence and intimidation. Written, produced, and directed by Oscar Micheaux
