"Always in Season" documentary film showing at the Central Library on Feb. 18.
This film follows the tragedy of African American teenager Lennon Lacy who, in August of 2014, was found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, N. C. His suspicious death was ruled a suicide by law enforcement, but Lennon’s mother, Claudia, her family, and many others believe Lennon was lynched.
The film chronicles Claudia's quest to learn the truth. It takes a close look at the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans, and connects the dots to show us America’s history of lynching isn’t history at all - its sinister seeds still bear “strange fruit.”
Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 6 p.m. in the Central Library Auditorium. There will be a panel discussion after the film.
This film is part of the RiverRun Indie Lens Pop-Up documentary series, shown in partnership with the Forsyth County Public Library.
