The Long Shadow

February 20 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

AZ Celebrates the 19th Amendment, along with Co-Hosts ERA Task Force AZ, PDA Arizona and ASU Film Association are proud to bring you this very important film.

Of all the divisions in America, none is as insidious and tenacious as racism. In this powerful documentary, director Frances Causey investigates the roots of our current racial conflicts. Causey and Long Shadow producer Sally Holst, both daughters of the South, were raised with a romanticized vision of America’s past. Haunted by the truth of slavery’s legacy in their own histories, they passionately seek the hidden truth of slavery’s legacy in their own histories, they passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories that reveal how the sins of yesterday feed modern prejudice, which burns undiminished despite our seeming progress.

We are honored to have Frances Causey with us for a discussion of the film afterward.
