Show Notes

× Fish Fry & Fellowship

See a work in progress version of a new documentary film in Manatee County!

Fish Fry & Fellowship is a story of a weekly African-American church fish fry in Palmetto, Manatee County that brings a formerly segregated community together and becomes an unexpected catalyst for an effort to identify unmarked graves in an abandoned Black cemetery.

This documentary stands as a poignant reminder that shared experiences can bridge even the widest divides. This captivating narrative now serves as an enduring testament to the strength of community, the warmth of friendship, and the unifying potential of a plate of delicious fish. As we immerse ourselves in the Fish Fry’s story, we’re reminded of the boundless possibilities that emerge when hearts and minds come together, igniting change, one story at a time.
