The Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Falmouth will show the film “Journeys in the Light: Democracy, Diversity, and Myth in the Wake of the Mayflower” at 7 PM, Thursday, May 25, at the UU Meeting House, 840 Sandwich Road in East Falmouth.

The film’s creators look beyond the iconic Eurocentric Mayflower story to present highlights in the history of the African American, Cape Verdean and Wampanoag people in this region since the arrival of the English settlers in 1620. They find, in the Mayflower Compact and antecedents in Native American governance, powerful relevance for the divided America of today.
