A Modern Day Lynching? Screening of Always in Season

February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

In 2014, African American teen Lennon Lacy was found hanging from a swingset in Bladenboro, North Carolina. Weaving together the story of his mother Claudia Lacy’s fight for a federal investigation into Lennon’s death, the grassroots effort for justice and reconciliation in other communities facing lynching, and expert interviews, this harrowing film explores the impact of the racial terrorism of the past that still remains today.
