ABOUT THE SCREENING

Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning novel by Colson Whitehead, THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD chronicles Cora Randall’s (newcomer Thuso Mbedu) desperate bid for freedom in the antebellum South.

Chapter 2: South Carolina (2021, Amazon Studios, 66 min, Dir: Barry Jenkins)

Griffin, South Carolina – a seeming paradise of progress and racial harmony that hides dark secrets, especially the secrets of “Bessie” and “Christian.” Meanwhile, bounty hunter Arnold Ridgeway begins his pursuit of Cora.
