Lillian Smith: Breaking the Silence

Lillian Smith: Breaking the Silence is a 50-minute documentary about the life and work of Georgia writer and activist Lillian Smith (1887 – 1966). This is an encore screening following the premiere at the Decatur Library in Decatur, GA on May 16. The documentary, created by Hal and Henry Jacobs, explores Smith’s life as one of the first prominent white southerners openly denouncing racial segregation and actively working against Jim Crow. While free to attend, seating is limited and tickets require reservation. This project is supported by Georgia Humanities.
