Mishy Lesser (Learning Director, Upstander Project)

In a new short film, Bounty, Penobscot parents and their children celebrate their survival by reacting to a government-issued bounty proclamation that promised large sums of money for colonial settlers to hunt, scalp, and murder their ancestors. Dr. Mishy Lesser, learning director of Upstander Project, will introduce Bounty and will be joined during the Q&A by Clark students Lamisa Muksitu and Penelope Kogan who collaborated with her as summer interns on the teacher’s guide that accompanies the film.
