AN OUTRAGE is a new short documentary film about lynching in the American South. Filmed on-location at lynching sites in six states and bolstered by the memories and perspectives of descendants, community activists, and scholars, this unusual historical documentary seeks to educate even as it serves as a hub for action to remember and reflect upon a long-hidden past. The film's premiere will take place on March 11th at 4:00pm at the National Museum of American History as part of the History Film Forum. The filmmakers will be joined for a post-screening Q&A by two of the historians who appear in the film, Jonathan Holloway of Yale University and Yohuru Williams of Fairfield University. More details on the film are available at an-outrage.com. Tickets and more information are available at http://historyfilmforum.si.edu/calendar/2017-forum/.
