The online festival will only cost viewers $15 on Vimeo, which gives access to all content until the end of the month. 

“We kick off Black History Month with Black Like Me Outdoor Edition. This is a series of eight films, all of them one hour 44 minutes in total duration,” read the website.

The panel discussion will be hosted by Demiesha Dennis of @browngirloutdoorworld on Feb. 26 at 4:30 p.m.

The panel discussion theme will be “Writing Our History” according to an instagram post by Dennis (see above).

“As I think of what ‘Writing Our History’ means to me, I see Community and I hear joy. I see a history cemented by these moments, by this Community that allowed themselves the beauty of experiencing and living in joy.” read Dennis’s post.
