Black History Film Series – The Passing On

Three professions ushered former slaves from poverty to the American dream: preacher, teacher, and undertaker. Now, renowned embalmer James Bryant puts his faith in a new generation to continue the legacy of Black funeral homes in San Antonio, TX. However his young intern, Clarence Pierre, is conflicted about his commitment due to the judgment he receives as a gay man in the African American community. Join the conversation immediately following the film with local Black undertakers. Admission is free, but registration is required. This program was made possible in part with a grant from Humanities Texas.
