On Wednesday, February 21st, the 1836 Project Advisory Committee, which includes TPPF CEO Greg Sindelar and TPPF Distinguished Senior Fellow Sherry Sylvester, will hold a meeting at the African American Museum of Dallas.

The Committee will review the next installment in TPPF’s short film series, Forging Texas. “Making of a Classic” is produced by Stephen Robinson and Martin Jones. The film chronicles a moment on set during the filming of the 1941 film, The Blood of Jesus by filmmaker Spencer Williams. Williams’ film was one of the most successful of the so-called “race films” of that era.
