Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival Screening of Through the Banks of the Red Cedar
August 7, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Advancement Project’s national office Executive Director Judith Browne Dianis is participating in the annual MVAAFF, a week-long celebration of films by, for and about the African diaspora. She will lead a talk-back discussion following the screening of “Through the Banks of the Red Cedar.” The documentary highlights the “underground railroad” of college football – Michigan State University – due to Hall of Fame Coach Duffy Daugherty’s innovative approach to recruiting African-American men from the South to MSU in the 1960s. The documentary, as told by Maya Washington, the daughter of one of the former teammates, delves into how the first fully-integrated college football team in the U.S. came to be.
