Film Screening and Discussion — “Anna”

Lecture Description

In November 1815, an enslaved woman from Prince George’s County leapt from the third-floor window of the slave jail at George Miller’s F Street tavern in Washington, D.C. This 11 minute award-winning film reconstructs her story based on the available documentary evidence. Thomas co-produced “Anna.” In a brief lecture he discusses the making of the film and the current scholarship of slavery and freedom-making in U.S. history.

For a preview, go to “Anna.”
