Join us for Conversations for Change where we preview and discuss parts of the film Harriet Tubman: Visions of Freedom. This film is an impressionistic look into the life of Harriet Tubman -- an enslaved woman who became a fearless guide out of slavery; an abolitionist, a spy and military leader; a suffragist. A woman dedicated to the conviction that freedom should be universal.
Our discussion will be led by Dr. Karsonya "Kaye" Wise Whitehead, founder and director, the Karson Institute for Race, Peace and Social Justice at Loyola University Maryland. Dr. Whitehead is the award-winning radio host of "Today With Dr. Kaye" on WEAA; an OpEd columnist for the Afro newspaper; and, the Founding Executive Director of The Emilie Frances Davis Center for Education, Research, and Culture.
Harriet Tubman: Visions of Freedom and Becoming Frederick Douglass are co-productions of Maryland Public Television (MPT) and Firelight Films with major funding from the State of Maryland. Additional funding provided by Bowie State University and DIRECTV.
