Always in Season
By Jacqueline Olive. A co-production of Always in Season, LLC, the Independent Television Service, and Black Public Media.
ALWAYS IN SEASON follows the tragedy of African American teenager Lennon Lacy, who in August 2014, was found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina. His suspicious death was ruled a suicide by law enforcement, but Lennon’s mother, Claudia, her family, and many others believe Lennon was lynched.
The film chronicles Claudia's quest to learn the truth and takes a closer look at the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans and connects the dots to show us America’s history of lynching isn’t history at all - its sinister seeds still bear “strange fruit.”
