A Long, Long Way: Conversations on Race and Film

Before his death in 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. remarked that while the nation had come “a long, long way” in its quest for racial justice, it still had a long, long way to go. In this spirit, the Long, Long Way Film Weekend at Washington National Cathedral compares historical and contemporary film, offering a unique opportunity to explore narratives of race and prejudice over time.

This year, the series moves online as a two-part event, comparing Casablanca (1942), Crash (2004), and Black Panther (2018)
