The Lapidus Center presents “We Carry It Within Us”. This film explores the collective memory of and differing perspectives on the shared slavery and colonial histories between Denmark and the current U.S. Virgin Islands. Which events and individuals are remembered or excluded in public memories of the past? What are the ethical considerations involved in narrating history? A talkback with the film’s director Helle Stenum, artist La Vaughn Belle, scholar Dr. Tami Navarro, and writer Tiphanie Yanique will follow.
