OLD CHATHAM — Old Chatham Quaker Meetinghouse, 539 County Route 13, Old Chatham, will host a screening of “Always in Season” Jan. 11. Potluck at 6 p.m. and film at 7 p.m. Always in Season takes an unflinching look at the multi-generational impact of lynching, connecting the racial violence that persists today to historical lynching terrorism. The film centers on the case of Lennon Lacy, an African American teen who was found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina, in 2014, and whose mother, Claudia, seeks answers for her son’s death which was quickly ruled a suicide despite inconsistencies in the case. This film is co-presented with WMHT Public Media. Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served and a moderated discussion will follow. For information, call 518-610-3735; www.oldchathamquakers.org.
