FILM | Blue Alchemy: Stories of Indigo
August 22, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pmFree
The story of the history of the contributions of the Gullah Geechee people to indigo cultivation in the American colonies in the 1700s is one that starts in Africa — and intersects with communities around the world. Join us for a free screening of “BLUE ALCHEMY: STORIES OF INDIGO” a feature-length documentary about the history, culture, and revival of the blue dye. Screening takes place immediately before our panel discussion “Indigo: The Color that Changed the World” which will start at 6 pm.
Presented by the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission and the Charleston County Public Library.
