From Slavery to Freedom Film Series

February 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

The From Slavery to Freedom Film Series, in partnership with the Frick Environmental Center of the Pittsburgh Parks Conservancy, examines themes from the History Center’s award-winning exhibition through the presentation of film screenings throughout the year.

For Black History Month, the History Center will virtually screen “Come Hell or High Water: The Battle for Turkey Creek,” which explores the painful but inspiring journey of Derrick Evans, a Boston teacher who moves home to coastal Mississippi when the graves of his ancestors are bulldozed to make way for the sprawling city of Gulfport.

Admission is free. Please register online in advance.
