The film has broadcasted nationally on PBS, and now the filmmakers are partnering with the DA Global Black Caucus, in liaison with the Together Is Better Alliance, for this special screening event and live Q&A!
RSVP below to join us for the live Q&A with Director Frances Causey.
We’re excited to share the PBS film THE LONG SHADOW, which follows former CNN Senior Producer, TED contributor, and Emmy-Award winning Director Frances Causey as she traces her family’s legacy of white privilege, placing it in the context of the history of anti-black racism in the United States that began with slavery and continues to impact our society today.
More about The Long Shadow
The Long Shadow provides much needed and critical background information about the institutional racist oppression and violence against African-Americans that has been perpetuated for more than 400 years.
The Long Shadow follows former CNN Senior Producer, TED contributor, and Emmy-Award winning Director Frances Causey as she traces her family’s legacy of white privilege, placing it in the context of the history of anti-black racism in the United States that began with slavery and continues to impact our society today.
Frances Causey and Producer Sally Holst passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories of how America—guided by the South’s powerful political influence—steadily, deliberately and at times secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture and economy.
We encourage you to watch the documentary prior to attending the event.
You can watch the documentary for free via PBS during a 7 day period from September 26th 2021 - October 3rd. Be sure to RSVP to join the live Q&A September 30th 2021, 1 PM ET / 5 PM UTC / 7 PM CET / 1 AM HKT with Director Frances Causey.
“When you are accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression.”
