A Legacy Unbroken: The Story of Black Charlottesville
January 24 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
When Charlottesville filmmaker, Tanesha Hudson, premiered her documentary, A Legacy Unbroken: The Story of Black Charlottesville, in November 2019, it created waves throughout the city. We are excited to welcome Hudson and her team to Vinegar Hill Theatre to share her film and host a panel Q&A and discussion after the screening.
“A Legacy Unbroken neither “whitewashes” the black experience in Charlottesville by viewing it from a white perspective nor focuses on its difficult and negative aspects: instead, through interviews with community leaders and ordinary residents and a wealth of archival photographs (from The Tribune in UVA Special Collections and family histories), it richly celebrates the many positive, resilient, and outstanding aspects of business, religious, family, and leisure-time life in Charlottesville’s African American community. It shows how the black community achieved success despite all the obstacles that Southern racism placed in their path.”
*Tickets will be released soon and are being managed by Tanesha Hudson and her team. For the most up to date ticketing and event information, we recommend following their Facebook page.
