7:00 pm-8:30 pm
Join us for a free screening of Restoration: A Concert Film (2020), created by Lowcountry hip-hop duo Native Son in collaboration with Acres of Ancestry Initiative / Black Agrarian Fund. Restoration: A Concert Film explores Southern Black agrarian stories of self-determination, land ownership, and folkwit; amplifies ongoing struggles for restorative land justice in this country including the Black Farmers’ Appeal: Cancel Pigford Debt Campaign; and weaves together live musical performances from Native Son and the personal narratives of Black legacy farmers and land stewards throughout the film. Runtime: 66 minutes. Free as part of First Thursdays at the CMA.
This film is presented in connection to More Than Rhythm: A Black Music Series Featuring Benny Starr on Friday, June 3. Starr is one half of Native Son.
