Gina’s Journey: A Film Exploration on the First Official Slave Narrative
Gina’s Journey won the Official Roots Award at the 15th Annual Oakland International Film Festival!
In 1825 in Litchfield, Connecticut, William Grimes wrote and published the story of his life as a slave and of his subsequent escape to freedom. Almost two centuries later, this movie follows the quest of his great-great-great-granddaughter, Regina Mason, as she picks up where her pioneering ancestor left off, with a book, a documentary, and her own story of self-discovery through a rigorous commitment to her family’s past. Celebrate Black Histroy Month.
It is free and open to the public.
