Given the implications of William Faulkner's famous quote, "the past is not dead, it is not even past," what are the artistic challenges to contemporary filmmakers in telling the American history of enslavement, escape, and emancipation over 150 years ago?

With Writer and educator Jelani Cobb, actor and director Ruben Santiago-Hudson, filmmaker and artist Shola Lynch, director Melina Matsoukas
Moderator: Founder of Black Filmmaker Foundation Warrington Hudlin
