Vandy Film Series Offers Look at FOR LOVE OF LIBERTY Fri Jan 29

Vanderbilt University’s excellent International Lensfilm series presents a free screening and preview of director Frank Martin’s FOR LOVE OF LIBERTY: THE STORY OF AMERICA’S BLACK PATRIOTS, on Friday, January 29 at 7:00 p.m. in Sarratt Cinema. Admission is free and open to the public.

Martin and co-producer Richard Hull (a Vanderbilt alumnus) will be in attendance for a Q&A session following the screening, which will consist of a 40-minute cut of the four-hour film that will air on NPT-Channel 8 over two consecutive Thursdays, February 11 and 18 at 8:00 p.m.

Ten years in the making, FOR LOVE OF LIBERTY: THE STORY OF AMERICA’S BLACK PATRIOTS uses letters, diaries, speeches, journalistic accounts, historical text and military records to document and acknowledge the sacrifices and accomplishments of African-American service men and women since the earliest days of the republic. The screening is sponsored by the Film Studies Program, Bishop Joseph Johnson Black Cultural Center, Office of Arts & Creative Engagement, the American Studies Program, and The Vanderbilt Commons.
