Meeting: Event Center

After a screening of Obed Lamy's documentary film "Once Forgotten," a panel discussion and audience question-and-answer session will be held.

Once Forgotten is a short historical documentary telling the story of three enslaved men, Anthony, Aaron, and Randall, accused of killing a white slave owner. Anthony and Aaron were tried, acquitted and released, but were then victims of a lynch mob. Randall was subsequently hanged by the state of Arkansas. Only one side of their story has been told, that of the white slave owner's family over successive generations. An oral account of the events preserved in the Black community helps bring out the truth and honor their memories. The documentary seeks to bring to light this new version of the story while exploring the legacy of racial violence in America.

Director: Obed Lamy

Producers: Colleen Thurston & Sarah K. Moore

Following the documentary screening, there will be a panel discussion.
