A Legacy Unbroken Premiere’s at the Jefferson School

Film maker Tanesha Hudson premieres her film A Legacy Unbroken: The Story of Black Charlottesville to a sold out crowd on Saturday, November 23, 2019 and to a sold out encore showing the next day. From the website: ‘A Legacy Unbroken neither “whitewashes” the black experience in Charlottesville by viewing it from a white perspective nor focuses on its difficult and negative aspects: instead, through interviews with community leaders and ordinary residents and a wealth of archival photographs (from The Tribune in UVA Special Collections and family histories), it richly celebrates the many positive, resilient, and outstanding aspects of business, religious, family, and leisure-time life in Charlottesville’s African American community. It shows how the black community achieved success despite all the obstacles that Southern racism placed in their path.’

Tanesha Hudson is a community activist, organizer and educational consultant from Charlottesville who works to center the voices of marginalized communities in historical narratives. Tanesha is featured in the Emmy award-winning documentary Charlottesville and has been interviewed by CBS, MSNBC, HBO Vice, and other national and international news outlets. In 2018 she was a member of both the Charlottesville delegation to Ghana and the Charlottesville Civil Rights Pilgrimage.
