WXXI presents this Indie Lens Pop-Up film that follows a mother’s search for justice and reconciliation that begins while the trauma of more than a century of lynching Black Americans bleeds into the present.

In Always in Season, descendants of the victims and perpetrators of lynching are working together to heal a violent history. Blending observational footage with first-person testimonies and expert input, Always in Season examines the lingering impact of lynching and the link between this historic form of racial terrorism and the racial violence that exists today. Join WXXI on Monday, February 17, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at the Little Theatre for this FREE Indie Pop-Up series presentation of Always in Season.
