BGU graduate Alex Gee will be featured in a documentary, Justified Journey, on Monday, June 29.
Justified Journey, a documentary that follows Gee’s journey to Mississippi and Louisiana where he met his white relatives who are descendants of Ruben J. Gee, a wealthy Welsh slaveowner who owned his ancestors.
Justified Journey premieres Monday, June 29 at 7 pm CST on an online platform.
The strength and relevance of this story, which was filmed two summers ago, is a powerful way for non-Black allies to rethink US History using the lens of Gee’s family’s story. This contextualizes current race relations in the US in an uncanny manner.
