The Center for the Humanities at the University of New Hampshire has produced a film that explores the university’s and the state of New Hampshire’s history regarding slavery and racial segregation. The film is the work of historians Valerie Cunningham and JerriAnne Boggis.
One of the focuses of the film is the discovery of coffins from the African Burying Ground in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, that were discovered by city workers during a construction project.
The film Shadows Fall North will have its debut late this month at The Music Hall in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. A preview of the film can be viewed below.
