Free Screening: The Bell Affair

Date: Sep. 21, 2022
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center

Join Executive Producers Michael Burton, Kwakiutl L. Dreher, William G. Thomas III for the Lincoln premiere of their feature-length film, THE BELL AFFAIR!

In the summer of 1835, a strike at the Washington Navy Yard fueled a citywide race riot. The U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Francis Scott Key, set out to prosecute abolitionist Reuben Crandall for libelous sedition and the intent to incite a slave revolt. Freedom hung in the balance.

In the midst of this political turmoil, Daniel Bell convinced Mary’s dying slaveholder, Robert Armstead, to emancipate Mary and the children. Two days later, Armstead died, and his widow Susan Armstead refused to honor the Bells’ freedom.

She arranged to have Daniel secretly sold. Slave traders infiltrated the Navy Yard, captured an unsuspecting Bell on the shop floor, and dragged him in chains to the slave pen at the infamous Yellow House.

Daniel fought a desperate and expensive battle in court to win his own freedom and protect his family from Susan Armstead. When Mary and the children’s freedom suits failed in the courts, the Bells attempted to escape enslavement, setting off for freedom on a schooner called The Pearl.

Film Screening and Filmmaker Q&A: “Fruits of Labor,” directed by Emily Cohen Ibañez

Date: Sep. 22, 2022
Time: 5:30 pm
Location: Sheldon Museum of Art, Ethel S. Abbott Auditorium

“Fruits of Labor” is an award-winning documentary about a Mexican-American teenager who dreams of graduating high school, when ICE raids in her community threaten to separate her family and force her to become the breadwinner for her family by working in the strawberry fields and at a food processing factory on the central coast of California. The film asks what it means to come into one’s power as a young woman of color working in the wealthiest nation in the world. It offers a new narrative about workers that shows the nuances of how the global food system intersects with gender and family life.

A virtual Q&A with filmmaker Emily Cohen Ibañez, moderated by Laura Muñoz, assistant professor of history and ethnic studies, follows. Admission is free.

Emily Cohen Ibañez is a Latinx filmmaker based in Oakland who earned her doctorate in anthropology with a certificate in culture and media at New York University. Her film work pairs lyricism with social activism, advocating for labor, environmental, and health justice.
