Global Peace Film Festival
Join us Monday, July 13 at 7 p.m. for a conversation with Fr3der1ck Taylor, director of Counter Histories: Rock Hill (GPFF 2018).
The prestigious Cannes Festival and Market, whose original dates were postponed by the pandemic, selected Counter Histories: Rock Hill, which tells the stories of nine young black men exercising their power to change history. Fr3deR1cK brought a unique vision to bear in recounting the events which unfolded in Rock Hill, SC in 1961. His approach vividly connects the past to the present: Students at a small Baptist College, frustrated with the lack of progress, try a different tactic. Their approach brings national attention and inspires changes in strategy beyond Rock Hill. Today we are witnessing young people rising up and striking new paths in the journey to realizing a more just and equitable society. Fr3deR!cK’s film has traveled around the world bringing its message of struggle and progress, we are looking forward to catching up with him and discussing what comes next.
