The showings are free, and childcare will be provided upon request. Please call the church, 222-7339, if you want to bring children, so we can arrange for child care.

This powerful BBC documentary reconstructs the first influential slave narrative, the autobiography of Olaudah Equiano, which helped rouse the conscience of Europe and America against the shame of slavery.
Equiano’s story begins with his capture in West Africa in 1756 and recounts the horrors of the Middle Passage and everyday slave life on a Virginia Plantation. Slavery, he would observe, brutalizes not just the slaves but the masters and all of society. Resold to a British naval officer, Equiano learned to read and write, bought his freedom, married into English society and became a leading abolitionist. But it was his book, The Interesting Narration of the Life of Olaudah Equiano or Gustavus Vassa, the African, which vividly demonstrated the humanity of Africans as much as the inhumanity of slavery.
