An Outrage is a documentary film about lynching in the American South. Filmed on-location at lynching sites in six states and bolstered by the memories and perspectives of descendants, community activists, and scholars, this unusual historical documentary seeks to educate even as it serves as a hub for action to remember and reflect upon a long-hidden past.
The Gateway Film Center will be screening the film in February. Following the film, there will be a Q&A with the makers of the film moderated by Dr. Bart Elmore, Assistant Professor of History at OSU.

This event is co-sponsored by the Department of History, the Department of English, and the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies.
