Margaret Garner

2006 Rated NR 52m

In pre-Civil War America, Margaret Garner killed her daughter to keep the child from being returned to slavery. This documentary explores Garner's story in a contemporary context. Her painful history continues to resonate, becoming the basis for author Toni Morrison's novel Beloved and Richard Danielpour's opera "Margaret Garner," whose star, Denyce Graves, reveals personal experience with racism in modern America not far removed from Garner's.
