We are proud to present the second installment of the Race Scholar's Film series. This year, we present a screening of The Reconstruction of Asa Carter, a documentary about the man Asa Carter, a white male and notorious segregationist of the 1950's and 60's who reemerged in the 1970's as Forrest Carter, author of The Education of Little Tree, a memoir that was initially presented as being penned by a Native American author. Following the presentation of the documentary will be a panel of experts to discuss the film with the audience. The panel includes the film's director, Douglas Newman, the film's producer and Tyler and Alice Haynes Professor of American Studies, Dr. Laura Browder, Professor of United States History at the University of Oklahoma, Dr. Fay Yorbough, and Rice University Professor of History, Dr. Alexander Byrd.
This event is sponsored by the Kinder Institute's Race Scholars at Rice Program and also free and open to the public.
