Always in Season by Jacquelin Olive: A mother’s search for justice and reconciliation begins while the trauma of more than a century of lynching Black Americans bleeds into the present. In Always in Season, descendants of the victims and perpetrators of lynching are working together to heal a violent history.

Blending observational footage with first-person testimonies and expert input, Always in Season examines the lingering impact of lynching and the link between this historic form of racial terrorism and the racial violence that exists today.
