Last night’s screening at the North Carolina Museum of History was a success. After a discussion led by filmmakers Michele Fazio and Jason Hutchens, Lakota John and Kin took the stage.
Voices of the Lumbee will be screening at the North Carolina Museum of History on Friday Nov. 20th at 7pm. Cost is $5 per person (children under 12 get in free). The screening will be followed by a Q&A discussion with filmmakers.

We hope to see you there!
We’re excited to announce that Voices of the Lumbee will screen as part of Duke University’s Rights! Camera! Action! film series on Tuesday, October 20th. The event will take place in the Holsti-Anderson Family Assembly room in the Perkins Library on Duke’s campus. The screening begins at 6:30pm and will be followed by a panel discussion with filmmakers Michele Fazio and Jason Hutchens. They will also be joined by Lawrence Locklear (Lumbee) of the Southeast American Indian Studies Program at the University of North Carolina at Pembroke.
Additional screenings are being scheduled for November. We’ll continue to post new information as future screenings are finalized.
We are excited to announce that Voices of the Lumbee recently won the Studs Terkel Award for Media and Journalism from the Working Class Studies Association. An awards ceremony will be held at the association’s conference at Georgetown University at the end of May. The film will also be screened during the conference. We continue to seek venues to showcase the film and are happy that it continues to receive positive accolades. Many thanks to the Working Class Studies Association for this significant recognition.
Sandra Torres, VOTL’s production team research assistant, presented Stories of Struggle: Work Histories of the Lumbee at the Impact Conference, the largest service-learning conference in the nation, held in Los Angeles, CA this February. Her workshop introduced the three-year service-learning project that led to the making of Voices of the Lumbee and screened behind-the-scenes videos and opening segments of the film. She also shared archival research and led a workshop for members of the audience (students, teachers, and activists) to explore their own work histories. Thanks, Sandra, for all your hard work!
