Bettye Kearse: Screening of The Other Madisons

March 18, 2021 @ 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.”

This event will be hosted both via Zoom and Facebook Live, with event details to follow.
