An Outrage2017. USA. 33 min.
Director: Hannah Ayers, Lance Warren Featuring: Fostenia Baker, Thelma Dangerfield, McArthur Gray, Andre Johnson.
Preceded by the short film An Act of Terror (16 min.)
A documentary film about lynching in the American South, An Outrage was filmed on location at lynching sites in six states. Beginning with the end of the Civil War and continuing well into the middle of the twentieth century, the extralegal, socially sanctioned practice of torture and murder claimed the lives of at least 3,959 African American men, women, and children. This historical account, bolstered by the memories and perspectives of descendants, community activists, and scholars, is part of an ongoing exchange with the past to understand the outrages that have produced the nation’s present moment. Discussion with co-directors Hannah Ayers and Lance Warren
