AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) - A movie screening will shed light on the lingering impact of lynching and how individuals are working together to heal a violent history.

“Always in Season” will be shown at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 25 at the Amarillo College West Campus Lecture Hall, located at 6222 S.W. 9th Ave.
