Film Screening “Resurrecting Love”
1:00 PM
Hosted By: "Resurrecting Love" Film
The documentary film, "Resurrecting Love" tells the story of two women, one Black, one White who fight for over 20 years to end an illegal 60-year lockout of African-Americans from their family burial grounds in East Texas that challenges descendants still today.

These burial grounds contain the remains of formerly enslaved people. Their descendants want to remember their ancestors properly. Resurrecting Love is a feature length documentary film about their struggle to gain access and the wider history that led to this lock out and about the many other burial grounds around the country that are equally blocked, desecrated, erased.
