Documentary filmmaker, Frederick Murphy, hosts a conversation with descendants of enslaved individuals associated with Tudor Place and other historic sites with a history of enslavement. The event will consider the vitality of descendant communities, intergenerational identity, historical trauma and reconciliation. His first film, the award-winning The American South as We Know It, explored the lives of survivors of Jim Crow and those didn’t make the headlines. Mr. Murphy is the founder of History Before Us, and a graduate of Tennessee State University & Bethune-Cookman University with a masters degree in Transformative Leadership. This program will be held live and virtually via Zoom.
