MOSAIC FALL EVENT
 

MOSAIC (Multicultural, Open minded, Supportive, Accepting, Inclusive, Community) invited the Foote community to attend a special screening of the film Free Renty on October 18, from 6–8 p.m., followed by a Q&A with Tamara Lanier.

This groundbreaking film documents the ongoing legal battle between Lanier and Harvard University over the possession of daguerreotypes of her great-great-great grandfather, an enslaved man named Renty. According to the filmmakers: "The daguerreotypes were commissioned in 1850 by a Harvard professor to 'prove' the superiority of the white race. The images remain emblematic of America’s failure to acknowledge the cruelty of slavery, the racist science that supported it and the white supremacy that continues to infect our society today."
