Video Viewing and Discussion
Brought to Light with Barbara Reina
Sunday, May 5
Conkling Hall, 8 Methodist Hill Rd, Rensselaerville, NY 12147
The Rensselaerville Historical Society, Rensselaerville Library and Conkling Hall are sponsoring the viewing of the documentary BROUGHT TO LIGHT. Filmmaker Barbara Reina, the content writer, photographer and videographer of Brought To Light will provide background on the documentary and answer questions. The documentary is about unearthing the history of an African-American Cemetery. It is a story of rediscovery, respect and change in Kinderhook, NY where a few villager’s efforts to clean up some stone markers in an overgrown field leads to the rediscovery of a forgotten, “slaves cemetery” in which hundreds of African-Americans were buried in the 1800s. The Documentary is a portal to the past on the lives of Kinderhook’s lesser-known non-white population.
Copies of the DVD will be available for purchase.
