Cries from the Cotton Field Sneak Peek

Thursday 11th | 1pm

First United Presbyterian Church of Fayetteville, along with Butterfield Trail Village, will host a sneak preview of clips from Larry Foley’s film Cries from the Cotton Field, a history of Italian immigrants whose journey brought them to Tontitown, Ark. Professor Foley joined the University of Arkansas faculty in 1993, and eventually led the Journalism Department to become the School of Journalism and Strategic Media, twice earning national reaccreditation. Foley’s documentary films have earned eight Mid-America Emmys and 24 Emmy nominations in writing, journalistic enterprise, history, cultural history, special programs, and community service. Foley will speak about the new film, premiering in May 2024.

In the Performance Hall.
