The St. Catharines Musem & Welland Canals Centre will be screening the black history film “Risking Everything”. This 34 minute documentary is a story with many voices: those of Canadian ancestors who dreamed of freedom, of descendants and townspeople in the United States who remember the role their town played, in the words and hands of a sculptor, and in the voices of a renowned choir of young African Americans who carry forward the hopes of our ancestors. It’s a story that continues to be told everyday. Filmed, directed, and produced by Emmy Award-winning and 5 time Emmy nominee CBS cameraman Isadore Bleckman.

On September 24th, the film makers will be present for the screening. On October 1st, the sculptor featured in the film will be present for the screening.

No registration required, first come, first served.
