February 10, 2022 6:00 PM to 8:00 PMUptown Campus
Join the Sawyer Seminar for a double-screening at Stone Auditorium (in the Woldenberg Art Center on Tulane’s Uptown Campus) featuring Fireburn: The Documentary (2020) (20 minutes), Angela Golden Bryan (Writer), Joel Fendelman (Director), (https://www.fireburndocumentary.com/) and We Carry It Within Us (2017) (1 hr, 7 minutes), Helle Stenum, https://wecarryitwithinus.com/.
This film screening is part of From River Road to Copenhagen: Revising our Remembrance of the Past, a multi-part symposium running through February 10-15 that explores innovative approaches to publicly addressing the legacies of the transatlantic slave trade in the Americas, specifically in Louisiana and the Danish West Indies (now the U.S. Virgin Islands). Through film screenings, site visits, artist talk, and the opportunity for engaging conversation over dinner at Tulane, the symposium focuses on changing approaches to curating historical houses such as the Whitney Plantation and Shadows-on-the-Teche in Louisiana, and on the links between colonial sites in the Danish West Indies and I AM QUEEN MARY, an anti-colonial monument at the heart of Copenhagen’s colonial waterfront.
