Chavis, Jr., national co-chair of the US Movement for Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation (US TRHT) and author of The Silent Shore: The Lynching of Matthew Williams and the Politics of Racism in the Free State. Hidden in Full View tells the story of the lynching of Matthew Williams in Salisbury, Maryland, in 1931. The film is the first in a series “that follows the story of brave descendants and witnesses willing to use the truth to fuel restorative justice.”

The #BreatheWithMe Revolution and leaders of the US TRHT are working toward lasting and transformative policies at the local, regional, and national levels to dismantle systemic racism, and for the establishment of a national commission. A key component of this legislative effort is the creation of a distributed Archive of Racial and Cultural Healing (ARCH). Participants in the film screening will learn about TRHT and ARCH on the national level and as demonstrated through the story of the Black community in Salisbury, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

This event is sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA), the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL), the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Society of American Archivists (SAA), the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), and the 1890 Land-Grant Institutions and Tuskegee University Library Deans/Directors Association, Inc. Hidden in Full View is a project of the #BreatheWithMe Revolution, with support from Humanity United.

Registration has been extended to Wednesday, March 30. The event will also be live streamed on ARL’s YouTube channel.
