Summer Film Series – Hope of Escape

Join us at the International African American Museum for the moving second installment of our Summer Film Series, “Hope of Escape,” on Thursday, May 30. Set in the African Ancestors Memorial Garden, this award-winning historical drama brings to life the true story of Diane and her daughter Cornelia, who courageously sought freedom from enslavement in Charleston, SC. Surrounded by the stories of iconic figures like Julia Williams and Henry Highland Garnet, this film illuminates the resilience and strength at the heart of the quest for freedom.

This outdoor screening is a celebration of hope, resistance, and the unyielding spirit of those who fought for a better future. Made possible with the support of TD Bank, the evening promises an immersive experience into the struggle and triumphs of African American history. Don’t miss this powerful tale of determination and the enduring hope for escape against all odds.
