Long, Long Way: Race & Film 1968-2018 @ Washington National Cathedral

Co-sponsored by Baylor University and the Austin Film Festival, this three-day conference held at the Washington National Cathedral will consider how film has been both a divisive and unifying medium, and how it offers unique opportunities to launch substantial conversations about race and prejudice. Through film screenings, discussions, keynote speakers, teaching sessions on race and film and preaching on race and racial reconciliation, attendees will both participate in a national celebration of the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King during Black History Month, and elevate a national conversation on what divides us—and how we are meant to toil together.
