MFT & MOFGA Winter Film Series: Follow the Drinking Gourd
February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
MFT & MOFGA are pleased to present a winter film series! Follow the Drinking Gourd is the second of three in the series of documentary films exploring topics related to food, farming, and social justice.
Follow the Drinking Gourd is a feature documentary by filmmaker Shirah Dedman about the Black food justice movement. Family-friendly, funny and moving, this 60-minute film connects the legacy of slavery, land loss, and climate change to our fight for food security.
The film will begin at 6PM followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker at 7PM.
Registration, viewing, and the Q&A following the film will be hosted on kweliTV, a platform dedicated to allowing you to discover and celebrate Black stories from around the world through curated independent films, documentaries, web series, kids programming, news, and events/live experiences.
The $10 registration fee will help us cover the costs of the event.
