Fresh Docs Film Screening: “Chairman Jones”

February 27, 2015 @ 7:00 pm

The Center for Documentary Studies and the Southern Documentary Fund present a free screening of director Anna Jones’ Chairman Jones as part of the Fresh Docs series, which features documentary works-in-progress. Chairman Jones tells the story of the director’s father, James Henry Jones, a trailblazing black farmer who emerged as a leader during the 1969 school desegregation crisis in Northampton County, North Carolina. Following screenings, SDF director Rachel Raney moderates a conversation with the filmmaker in which the audience participates, providing valuable feedback.
