Lillian Smith was one of the first white southern authors to speak out publicly against the evils of segregation.

  • She was shamed, ridiculed and silenced for her beliefs.
  • She couldn't look away.
  • She never gave up.

Directors Hal and Henry Jacob will be present along with Sue Ellen Lovejoy, great-niece of Ms. Smith to answer your questions after the screening.

"Breaking the Silence" explores how this child of the South, Lillian E. Smith, became a formidable voice of the South -- a voice that has been muted in the decades after her death.

Just as important, it shows her relevance today as we face a rising tide of intolerance and discrimination throughout the world.
