Join Humanities Texas for a screening in Houston featuring excerpts from the forthcoming documentary film The Harvest followed by a panel discussion with the film’s director, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Douglas A. Blackmon, and local community leaders. This event is free and open to the public. Using archival film and footage shot by Blackmon and Academy Award-nominated producer Sam Pollard over two decades, The Harvest tells the story of one small Mississippi town’s struggle to integrate its public schools. Shown through the eyes of black and white children at the height of the civil rights movement, the film examines the transformation all of America would experience in the following years. This event is sponsored by Humanities Texas, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), and is made possible by a Humanities and the Legacy of Race and Ethnicity in the United States grant from NEH.
