Threads of History is a documentary film that captures the recollections of Booker T. Washington High School alumni, their teachers and past and present residents of the adjacent Johnson Street neighborhood. The film focuses on intersections, relationships and the school as a prevailing thread that linked all aspects of life during segregation. In the film, participants tell of a supportive educational atmosphere and a neighborhood that nurtured its own.

This screening is free and open to the public. The film has been supported in part by a grant from Virginia Foundation for the Humanities.
