Always in Season
Always in Season explores the traumatic history of lynching in the U.S. More than 4400 African Americans were killed by white mobs between 1877 and 1950.
Following the film we will discuss Bryan Stevenson’s Equal Justice Initiative to build memorials in PG County to address the local legacy of lynching. The discussion of racial injustice may also include inequitable policing, gun violence and mass incarnation.
