Searching for Timbuctoo

February 15, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Join filmmaker Paul Miller for a discussion on his new documentary film Searching for Timbuctoo.

The film documents the story of the Adirondack settlement of Timbuctoo, which emerged from an 1846 land giveaway to nearly 3,000 African American families so that they could have have the right to vote in New York State. The settlement encompassed land in Essex and Franklin Counties and its deep and powerful story remains hidden beneath the soil of the Adirondack landscape. This webinar features a trailer for the film, a short 20 minute presentation, and a Q&A with Paul.

Although these programs are offered free, we ask attendees to consider a small donation to AARCH. Your generosity helps ensure programs like this can keep happening throughout the year.
