ESC Presents: Shadows Falls North Panel Discussion

November 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:15 pm

Join us as we discuss the documentary Shadow Fall North with filmmakers, JerriAnne Bogis, Consulting Producer and Executive Director of the Black Heritage Trail NH, and Nancy Vawter, Producer and Co-owner of Atlantic Media Productions.

Shadows Fall North, 2021 Telly Awards winner, focuses on the efforts of two dedicated historic preservationists and activists, Valerie Cunningham (coauthor of Black Portsmouth: Three Centuries of African American Heritage) of Portsmouth and JerriAnne Boggis of Milford, to recover the stories of people who have been rendered nearly invisible in the historical record.

From the story of the recovery of the Portsmouth, NH African Burying Ground, to honoring the novelist Harriet Wilson of Milford, NH to the historical 1779 petition for freedom written by twenty enslaved Africans, this film brings to light many individuals whose lives and accomplishments were erased from New Hampshire’s collective memory.
