Bettye Kearse & Eduardo Montes-Bradley: Screening of The Other Madisons

March 18 @ 7:00 pm 8:30 pm

Join us as we present a special screening of “The Other Madisons” with a Q&A afterward with author Bettye Kearse and filmmaker Eduardo Montes-Bradley.

This documentary film by Montes-Bradley is based on the memoir The Other Madisons: The Lost History of a President’s Black Family by Kearse.

Both the book and the film chronicle Kearse’s family credo which was passed down for 200 years: “Always remember—you’re a Madison. You come from African slaves and a president.”

The film (approximately 38 minutes long) will be screened first, with time for Q&A afterward, with both Bettye and Eduardo.

***PLEASE NOTE: We are now at capacity for the Zoom Meeting. We will be streaming the Zoom Meeting in our Facebook Live – link here https://fb.me/e/1WQ0hpkTo

The Facebook Live will stream the documentary, and any questions asked in the Facebook Live will also be addressed in the Q&A afterward with Bettye and Eduardo.

We will also be uploading the recording to our YouTube channel, as well as on our Speaker Series webpage.***
