Double Feature at The Griot Museum

April 13 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Step into the past and witness captivating tales of resilience and redemption at The Griot Museum’s double feature screening of short films Honorable and Eliza. This screening includes an engaging talkback session with the writers, producers, and directors behind each short film. These stories, though separated through time and space, have roots in St. Louis that we will discuss in the conversation that follows, as well as the labor and love that went into each production. Honorable (2023) was written by Mia Bible and directed by Zachary Scott Clark and Mariah Richardson tells the story of the ruin and reconciliation between Malcolm X Shabazz and Muhammad Ali. Eliza (2023) directed by Delisa Richardson and Dean Steadman centers on Eliza Rone, an enslaved woman who, in 1856, worked for the richest family in St. Louis - the Campbell family.  Included with regular admission to The Griot.
