Finding Samuel Lowe – from Harlem to China


Sunday, May 15, 2016, Nevada Theatre, 7:00 pm

Award-Winning Documentary about a family transcending race, space, and time.


Three successful black siblings from Harlem discover their heritage while searching for clues about their long-lost grandfather, Samuel Lowe. Their emotional journey spans from Toronto to Jamaica to China, reuniting them with hundreds of Chinese relatives they never imagined existed.  A powerful memoir that is a universal story of one woman’s search for her maternal grandfather and the key to her self-identity.  Presented in collaboration with the Nevada Theatre Film Series, this special evening is a benefit for CATS. $10 at the door.  Filmmaker, Paula Williams Madison, would be available via Skype in a Q&A after the screening.
