BLESS THE SCREEN Becoming Frederick Douglass

BLESS THE SCREEN is a new screening series designed to unite students and communities through films illuminating the Black experience and telling stories that matter. Hosted by Philander Smith College in partnership with Arkansas PBS, each event will feature a historical or contemporary film and leave room for dialogue, reflection, and the chance to explore issues relevant to the world today.

The series is free, open to the public, and welcomes HBCU students, faculty, and all communities to join BLESS THE SCREEN, and connect to the campus community through film.

BECOMING FREDERICK DOUGLASS explores the inspiring story of how a man born into slavery transformed himself into one of the most prominent statesmen and influential voices for democracy in American history. Using his writings, images and words to follow his rise to prominence against all odds, the film is rooted in the singular truth of Douglass’s life: his insistence on controlling his own narrative and his lifelong determined pursuit of the right to freedom and complete equality for African Americans.
