Free Renty: Lanier v. Harvard

This incredibly poignant documentary tells the story of Tamara Lanier, an African American woman determined to force Harvard University to cede ownership of daguerreotypes of her great-great-great grandfather, an enslaved man named Renty. The images are emblematic of the inhumanity of slavery, the racist science that supported it, and the white supremacy that continues to infect our society today. The film focuses on Lanier, following her lawsuit and the growing activism around it, and also features attorney Benjamin Crump and author Ta-Nehisi Coates.
