The Language You Cry In

ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

THE LANGUAGE YOU CRY IN
A song that would not be forgotten
52 minutes, 1998

The Language You Cry In is an amazing detective story that reveals meaningful links between African Americans and their ancestral past. Bridging hundreds of years and thousands of miles from the Gullah people of present-day Georgia back to 18th century Sierra Leone, it recounts the remarkable saga of how African Americans retained links with their African past through the horrors of the middle passage, slavery and segregation. “This is a story of memory, how the memory of a family was pieced together through a song with legendary powers to connect those who sang it with their roots.”

Join us for film screenings followed by a provocative discussion about the themes. REEL Talks are free, but reservations are required.
