Juneteenth: “If They Took Us Back”

What if, after the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, the U.S. government had mandated the return of enslaved people to Africa? Alternate history short film “If They Took Us Back,” written and directed by Holly Charles-Pearson, examines that very question. To celebrate Juneteenth, Six Square screens the film along with a making-of documentary, live music from featured soundtrack artist Daniel Fears, a vendor market, art exhibit, and a panel discussion with the director and cast. – Kat McNevins
