Description

Georgetown Film Studies students explore the parallels between a Jesuit’s unanswered plea and a University’s reconnection with the descendants of slaves it owned, sold, and spurned. With the call for accountability in Father Van de Velde, S.J.’s 1848 letters echoing today, the interrogation of a past of indifference and silence may inspire a future of reconciliation and reunion.

This video was produced in Professor Bernard Cook's FMST 399 Social Justice Documentary class in the Spring 2017 semester.
