100 Years from Mississippi (2021) – Beyond Boundaries Film Series

100 Years from Mississippi (2021)

Directed by Buffalo native Tarabu Kirkland, who will be in attendance at this screening, the film tells the story of Mamie Lang Kirkland, who was 7 years old when she fled Mississippi in 1915 with her mother and siblings, as her father and his friend, John Hartfield, escaped an approaching lynch mob. John Hartfield returned to Mississippi in 1919 and was killed in one of the most horrific lynchings of the era. At 107 years old, Mamie Kirkland made the journey back to Mississippi with Tarabu Kirkland, her son, to finally confront her childhood trauma.
