Our Entangled Lives;


a journey of relative repair

"Reparations is the midpoint between truth and reconciliation."
-- David Ragland
Pam and Ann

Friends .... with complications

Almost 30 years ago we discovered we’re connected on opposite sides of a slaveholding household. Since then we’ve made dozens of presentations, especially on college campuses across the country, publicly reflecting on the meaning and implications of this fact. We’ve also appeared on Oprah and other TV shows to speak out about it. Now we’re making Our Entangled Lives, a documentary feature about our journey, with the hope that our struggles and joys can help to open up honest dialogue and lessen the distance between people today.
