Documentary Screening: “Lives Between the Line”s

Thursday, January 26, 2023

The Lives Between the Lines is an intimate, powerful film that documents the inspiration for and construction of the Memorial to Enslaved Laborers at the University of Virginia. The Memorial to Enslaved Laborers acknowledges the work and individual lives of the enslaved African Americans who built UVA and sustained daily life from its founding. Utilizing interviews with students, professors, and Charlottesville community members, and many descendants of the enslaved laborers at UVA, The Lives Between the Lines illuminates the difficult history of an American institution and honors the legacy of the community in which it lives.

After the screening, there will be a panel discussion featuring Cauline Yates and DeTeasa Brown Gathers, descendants of the enslaved laborers at UVA and Devon Henry of Team Henry Enterprises. Team Henry Enterprises is the company that erected the memorial. Dr. Valencia Adams will serve as the evening’s moderator.
