Friends of The Lilies Project will host a second community screening of Celebrating Courage, a short film honoring the legacy of John L. Hairston. Soul Ash Pictures created the film and it was originally showcased during the Celebrating Courage Weekend hosted in August 2018. The film will be shown from 2-4 pm at The Arts Place of Stokes in collaboration with the Stokes County Historical Society.
The original documentary has been edited to include a few additional photographs and documents found over the last few months. Two new short films, both at 9 minutes in length, will also be shown. These films capture the spirit of the three-day weekend and also share comments that attendees had about John L. Hairston’s impact on their lives.
