Voices of North Carolina chronicles the state’s diverse language traditions from the Outer Banks to the Southern Highlands. Cherokee and Lumbee Indians, rural and urban African-Americans, first language Spanish-speakers and southerners of all walks of life lend their voices to a universal portrait of language and identity.

This screening is a part of the Southern Culture Movie Series, presented by The Writing Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The series is designed to be an entertaining and critical introduction to the American South for international students and scholars, but all screenings are free and open to the public. The series will showcase films that focus exclusively on North Carolina. Many of the movies in this series are available at the Media Resources Center.
