Reconstruction: America After the Civil War

Virtual discussion of PBS’s Reconstruction: America After the Civil War.

The next film discussion in our ongoing Dominican Sisters of San Rafael Gather@Grand film series is Monday, November 28, 2022, when we will discuss PBS’s Reconstruction: America After the Civil War.

The Film Studies option of our Gather@Grand program is designed and co-led by Ms. Linda Pete and Sr. Patricia Dougherty, OP, educators who have led the series since 2020 and provide a study guide and offer a virtual discussion process. Building on the success and interest of this genre over the past two years, we invite participants to view a series of films exploring various tendencies and resolves to sweep racism under the rug and also the courage and persistence to confront it, with study and discussion questions provided by Linda; the films may be viewed when convenient and then Zoom sessions will be scheduled for those choosing to discuss issues in common.
