Screening & Community Conversation: “Vermont Speaks for Itself”
January 14 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
“Vermont Speaks For Itself” is a 1973 social justice multi-media documentary project produced and distributed by the Vermont Media Collective in the mid-1970s. The documentary uses extensive interviews with Vermonters to illustrate the economic and social conditions faced by Vermont’s low-income and working people during that period, backed with additional narration that highlights research and proposes solutions. A traditional string band sound track recorded by local performers accentuates the project.
Join the Vermont Historical Society for a special screening of this recently digitized film, followed by a community conversation building on the film’s themes of social justice, economic reform, progressive activism, and support for all Vermonters. This event is part of our annual series commemorating the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
