Safe House Museum And Black Belt Citizens Movie Series

The Safe House Museum and Black Belt Citizens Movie series will take place on Thursday, October 3, 2019, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.  The movie series will be hosted at the Safe House Black History Museum, 518 Martin Luther King Drive, Greensboro.  The October 3rd event offers free admission with light snacks for the showing of the movie “Uniontown” which was produced by Fraser Jones.  This movie “highlights the 2018 work of Uniontown community leaders in the midst of a high-stakes local election where a group of grassroots activists in rural AL banded together to take on industrial polluters and complacent politicians.”

In a recent press release from Adam Johnston, Coordinator for Black Belt Citizens Fighting for Health and Justice the two organizations felt it was important to “honor the historic efforts of those who fought for justice and equal rights. We come together to unite communities in Hale and Perry County. We come together to educate our youth and community leaders that there is a way forward.”

“Uniontown” is already receiving many accolades such as “the winner of Best Short Film at Earth X Film Festival and The Reel South Award at Indie Grits Film Festival.  Also, “Uniontown” has an official selection at the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival and the American Documentary Film Festival.
