Practicum Film: Honest, Abe.

Abraham Lincoln, American icon, born in the Kentucky wilderness February 12, 1809. Or was he? For over 150 years, the people of Western North Carolina have kept a legend alive that controverts the traditional Lincoln birth story. Their story holds that the nation’s sixteenth president was born in Rutherford County, North Carolina, in 1806 – and his father was not Tom Lincoln.

Honest, Abe. a film by Mary Lopez

Playing Thursday, May 6th at the Weatherspoon Art Gallery
