Folkstreams is featuring films on African American life for Black History Month. The selection is rich and includes most of the old 16mm titles made on the African American experience in the South.

Also, Director Tom Davenport was invited by the grandchildren of Bertha and Coy Landis to make a sequel to the 1985 film A Singing Stream: A Black Family Chronicle. The new film, which started in 2011, is called Reunion and follows the grandchildren 30 years after the first film.

Both one-hour films are being released to public libraries on a single DVD.

Please alert you local public library about this DVD which highlights the struggle and success of this remarkable "ordinary" family. The storyteller, Louise Anderson, said that in order to love anyone "you must know their stories."
