The short film details the events surrounding the public lynching and torture of 17-year-old Jesse Washington in 1916, Waco, Texas.
Eison has also previously produced the 2004 documentary “July ’64,” which chronicles the 1964 Rochester race riots, and he will also moderate a discussion following the event.
Admission to the event will be free and open to the public. Call (585) 254-2570 for additional information regarding the event.
