BANISHED - Movie at Friday Fun Night

mules at the wellOn Friday, September 6 a large group watched this movie together.

In the stories of black families whose land and livelihood were stolen, the film illustrates the limits of the American legal system and the need for creative forms of repair. By introducing these families and the white communities who forced them out, BANISHED raises the question of responsibility for past wrongs and what is involved in righting them.

Commission; Larry Doll, local farmer and board member of the Legacy Land Conservancy; new farmer, Hannah Rose Weber of the Land Loom; Kathy Sample of Argus Farm Stop; and Remy Long of the Greenbelt program.
