Salem Film Premiere: An American Ascent

July 27, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$5

AnAmericanAscent(500KB150dpi) An American Ascent

An American Ascent is a feature documentary about the first African American expedition to tackle North America’s highest peak, Denali. In only a few decades the United States will become a majority-minority nation and people of color will outnumber the white majority for the first time ever. Yet a staggering number of these people do not consider the outdoors as a place for them.

In June 2013, nine African Americans set out to build a legacy and become role models for inner city kids and people of color all over America to encourage them to get outside. They did so by taking on the grueling, 20,237-foot peak of the continent’s biggest mountain.

The screening will take place in Hudson Hall on the Willamette University campus. Director Andy Adkins, photographer Hudson Henry and climber Scott Briscoe will be in attendance. Suggested donation is $5/person.
