Tracing a heartfelt journey, award-winning filmmaker Sterlin Harjo interweaves the tale of a mysterious death in 1962 with the rich history of the powerful hymns that have united Native American communities in times of worship, joy, tragedy, and hope. By investigating the stories of these songs, this illuminating film takes us on an epic tour as we travel with the power of the music through Southwest America, slavery in the deep South, and as far away as the Scottish Highlands. Refreshments will be served.
Join us for a screening of the film and a post-film discussion led by Khary Jones, Lecturer and Filmmaker, Tufts Drama and Dance Department. This screening is part of the Dean of Student Affairs Film Series and is co-sponsored by the Tufts University Chaplaincy and CAFE.
