 WPL is proud to be partnering with several Illinois libraries to offer free streaming of the documentary film, The Long Shadow, during the week of February 19-26.

The Long Shadow follows former CNN Senior Producer, TED contributor, and Emmy-Award winning Director Frances Causey as she traces her family’s legacy of white privilege, placing it in the context of the history of anti-black racism in the United States that began with slavery and continues to impact our society today.

View the film, then join us on February 24 at 7pm for a live Q&A on Zoom webinar with the film's Director, Frances Causey (registration for Q&A begins Jan. 2). Link for both the film streaming and registration for Q&A here:
