Summoned: Frances Perkins and the General Welfare
(60 minutes NR) 2019 Mick Caouette, director
Opens Oct 27
In the depths of the Great Depression, Franklin Roosevelt appointed Frances Perkins as the first woman on a presidential cabinet. Against overwhelming odds, she became the driving force behindSocial Security, the 40-hour work week, the eight-hour day, minimum wage and unemployment compensation. Summoned: Frances Perkins and the General Welfare features compelling interviews with David Brooks, Nancy Pelosi, Amy Klobuchar, Lawrence O’Donnell and others while telling Perkin’s heroic story which explores the history of women in politics, Social Security, our attitudes toward immigration, poverty, Socialism, and the role of government. Without this context our current dialogue is ill-informed and diminished.

In 2012 a massive straight-line wind and thunder storm roared across the United States from Iowa to the Chesapeake Bay leaving a swath of destruction.

An admission by the farm's owner that a skull had been found near the fallen tree many years ago results in an archaeological and forensic quest by the farm owners, a team of experts, and the local African American community that results in the discovery of an African American slave cemetery dating back to the American Colonial era. Event held in partnership with the Farm Heritage Conservancy. A panel discussion will follow the screening.
