Black Indians: an American Story - Film Viewing & Discussion

The Hyattsville Branch Independent Film Series is in its fourth year of screening movies that expand our minds and our hearts; they inspire community conversations.   In November our conversation will be facilitated by Talaya Grimes of the Creative Edge Studio.  Refreshments will be served.

The Rich-Heape documentary brings to light a forgotten part of America's past-the cultural and racial fusion of Native and African Americans.  This presentation explores what brought the two groups together, what drove them apart, and the challenges that face them today.  From the Atlantic Seaboard to the Western Plains, family memories and historical highlights reveal the indelible mark of this unique ancestry, and its continuing influence throughout the generations.
