Santori Library

In February and March, we are highlighting our Advancing through Equity Strategic Plan Initiative by partnering with area libraries to offer an exclusive documentary film viewing of The Long Shadow.

This documentary traces Director Frances Causey's family legacy of white privilege within the context of anti-Black racism in the U.S.  From a lens of critical anti-racism, the film uses historically racist imagery and visuals to tell a painful story about white supremacy.

Visit http://thelongshadowfilm.com/libraries/ to stream the film any time between February 19 and February 26, 2021.

Join us for a live online conversation and Q&A with Causey on Wednesday, February 24 from 7 to 8 p.m.  Check out our event page and register here https://www.aurorapubliclibrary.org/event/4745809

Message from the Filmmakers:

Thank you so much for watching and sharing The Long Shadow. You are part of a
community helping to spread the message that the work of equity and equality must fall
in the hands of white Americans. We’re honored that the film is educating & guiding so
many about what it takes to make an important change to the way that white Americans
view their role in racial justice work. We know that the story of slavery and Jim Crow is an
American story and is not one that the African-American community is responsible for
repairing.


With our utmost gratitude,
Frances Causey, Director
Sally Holst, Producer

Co-sponsored by multiple Illinois libraries and held in partnership with Racial Awareness in the North Shore (RAIN) and Together is Better Alliance (TiBA).
