Description

Beginning with the story of Yarrow Mamout, one of the best documented Africans to live in early Georgetown, With The Promise To Always Remember explores the erasure of the Black historical presence in the Georgetown neighborhood, as well as Georgetown’s strong ties to slavery and racial injustice. The documentary explores the disturbing trend of building on top of cemeteries and interred bodies within the neighborhood, university, community and beyond. Following different efforts to keep alive the memory of the forgotten, With The Promise To Always Remember searches for meaningful ways to ensure that legacies and preservation are upheld.

This documentary video was created by Georgetown students in Film Studies 399: Social Justice Documentary with Professor Bernie Cook in the Spring 2021 semester.
