Justified Journey Documentary Screening
A free online viewing/Q&A for the documentary, Justified Journey is happening on Sunday, February 28, 2021 at 2:00pm. It’s the final day of Black History Month and Dr. Alex Gee and Greg Jeschke will take audience questions after the viewing. They plan to tie-in what’s happened over the past year or so to the themes and messages in the film.
Justified Journey follows a Wisconsin man as he discovers his heritage within America’s gruesome slave history. Alex Gee tells his story, the story of many African Americans, that began forty years ago as a boy watching the TV series, “Roots”. Decades later, he resumes his journey in earnest and it takes him to the painful origins of his family. But from that experience he makes the poignant discovery that alters his perspective on the past and the future. As he reflects on his story, Gee reveals how it embodies the wider struggle for black equality and equity in America and what must be done to create real change.
Justified Journey, a documentary by JDog Productions, LLC, has attracted international attention after being named Best Documentary in the 2020 Indian Indie Film Festival and a Silver Award in the 2020 Spotlight Documentary Film Awards.
