Cathedral 1976: a film by Don Wright
About This Event
Join us at the Greenfield Public Library on Wednesday, February 21 at 5:30 pm as we celebrate Black History month with the documentary Cathedral 1976, by filmmaker Don Wright.
In 1976, Boston Public Schools were under court control to desegregate through a system of busing students. Cathedral 1976 looks at how a 10 year old in Boston’s South End was changed by busing and the lasting effects felt nearly 50 years later. Directed by local filmmaker Don Wright, Cathedral 1976 is one assessment of race and racism, including people from the Greenfield community and their work navigating the tension between systemic racism and the choices it brings about with lived experiences.
Don Wright, filmmaker and active in the local recovery community for the past seven years, lives in Greenfield.
This program, generously sponsored by the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and open to everyone in our community.
