Fordham Conversations
Tapping into the Fordham University community to discuss and uncover issues that impact our world locally and beyond.

In the post-civil war south, many freed slaves relied on self-help groups known as benevolent societies to  bury their dead.  In a new documentary titled “The Contradictions of Fair Hope” we look at the evolution of one particular Alabama society called "Fair Hope", and why its survival is arguably a struggle between heaven and hell.   On this week’s Fordham Conversations, WFUV’s Robin Shannon talks with the films Executive Producer and Co-Director S. Epatha Merkerson and Cultural Anthropologist and Fordham Professor Aimee Cox.
