The DA Aix-Marseille Chapter and the DA France Diversity Caucus are pleased to present a special screening and discussion of the award-winning documentary film THE LONG SHADOW to our members, with a Q&A with very special guest, THE LONG SHADOW director Frances Causey.
This event is a fundraiser for Democrats Abroad's Get Out the Vote efforts for the 2022 Midterm elections — your donation helps us get out the American overseas vote in France. A suggested contribution of $5 USD or more is kindly requested. Please click here to donate.
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.
