Storyline

When filmmaker and investigative journalist Frances Causey, a daughter of the South, set out to explore the continuing racial divisions in the US, what she discovered was that the politics of slavery didn't end with the Civil War. In an astonishingly candid look at the United States' original sin, The Long Shadow traces slavery's history from America's founding up through its insidious ties to racism today.

A Companion to "13th"
23 August 2018 | by tdadpeteSee all my reviews

Frances Causey takes a brave journey into her own family history in this timely film. A southern white film-maker dares to learn for herself the racial history of her family. The result is a film both personal and public. It is historical and contemporary. It belongs beside Ava Duvernay's "13th" as expose and catalyst for racial understanding.
