Carvin Eison Presents: Shadows of the Lynching Tree

BIG RAPIDS - Ferris State University's Office of Multicultural Student Services and the Diversity and Inclusion Office are sponsoring a presentation from producer director Carvin Eison, titled, "Shadows of the Lynching Tree." The event takes place this Wednesday (March 17) from 6 to 8 p.m. in the IRC 120 auditorium.

America's painful history of lynching far too often is not discussed as a component of so many of our lessons. The history of lynching, however, is the subject of Eison's powerful and thought-provoking new documentary. As described, the film probes the heart of white-hot hatred, unimaginable violence and hope. Following the showing, Eison will be present to provide answers to any questions that arise from the film.

Everyone from the campus and local community are invited to attend this event.

Anyone with questions can contact Michael Wade in the OMSS office at (231) 591-2617, dial extension 2617 on campus or e-mail at michaelwade@ferris.edu.
