The Long Shadow

We have partnered with the Northbrook Public Library and other libraries around Illinois to bring you a live Q&A session with the creators of the award-winning documentary The Long Shadow.

The Long Shadow follows former CNN Senior Producer, TED contributor, and Emmy-Award winning Director Frances Causey as she traces her family’s legacy of white privilege, placing it in the context of the history of anti-black racism in the United States that began with slavery and continues to impact our society today.

Frances Causey and Producer Sally Holst passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories of how America—guided by the South’s powerful political influence—steadily, deliberately and at times secretly, established white privilege in our institutions, laws, culture and economy.

You will be able to view The Long Shadow for free anytime between Friday, February 19 and Friday, February 26 by visiting
