Using circa 1865 contemporaneous documents such as meeting minutes, letters, diaries, journals and newspapers, 40 Acres and a Mule, Inc. (in partnership with 40 Acres and a Mule Tour, LLC) has preserved Savannah's historic meeting of Black church leaders with U.S. government officials on January 12, 1865 through a 35-minute film, which you can view above. We show it in public venues such as libraries, churches, schools, museums and film festivals. Each screening inevitably leads to a dynamic audience discussion of how this event still impacts our society today and what we can do to achieve equality for all our people.
Your contribution to our cause helps us to increase the conversation across the USA. Thank you.
