Opens Nov 14In 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. On Serenity Farm--a former tobacco plantation in Benedict, Maryland--the storm uprooted an enormous oak tree leaving a massive hole. 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.Thursday, Nov 14 8:00 PM FREE AUD Q&A
