Description

This short film was produced by Georgetown College students Jeanne Bowers, Charlotte Jackson, Keeho Kang, and Meghan Shapiro in FMST-399: Social Justice Documentary, taught by Professor Bernard Cook in the Spring 2019 semester. The short film examines the effort by Georgetown students to secure passage of a student government referendum committing each undergraduate student to a new fee of $27.20. The fees would fund reparative justice initiatives in partnership with the descendants of the people enslaved and sold by the Jesuits in 1838. The film organizes an array of perspectives on the referendum and documents the historic vote and outcome.
