A screening of the PhotoSynthesis Productions film Civil Warriors, a dramatization of four Ithacans who served in the United States Colored Troops (USCT) during the Civil War. Produced and directed by Deborah C. Hoard and Che Broadnax, the film explores the unique setting of the soldiers’ African American Southside community and connects to the larger struggle for civil rights at this pivotal point in national history. Winner of two independent film-festival awards, the drama illuminates the lives of African American soldiers and their families through first-person narration that resonates with the power of spoken word performance. A panel discussion will follow the film, and director Hoard will share a curriculum based on the C3 Framework for Social Studies that focuses on the concepts of storytelling and recovered history.
