The Long Shadow follows former CNN Senior Producer, TED contributor, and Emmy-Award winning Director Frances Causey and Producer Sally Holst as they trace their family 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. The Long Shadow reached over 90% of the US with its National PBS Broadcast and continues to be shared by hundreds of Universities, congregations, community groups, nonprofits, and equity-driven organizations across the country.
