TFinding Samuel Lowe Documentary Screening
Hosted by Gilroy Library and Silicon Valley Reads
Part of Silicon Valley Reads programming: An Afro-Chinese-Jamaican Harlem family seeks their Chinese grandfather who was separated from their mother (his 3-year-old half-Chinese, half-Jamaican daughter) in 1920. Samuel Lowe returned to China in 1933 with a Chinese wife and six children. After a 91-year separation, his Black Chinese grandchildren journey to China where they find Samuel Lowe’s 300 Chinese descendants and the entire clan is reunited. This film takes viewers to Harlem, Toronto, Martha’s Vineyard, Jamaica, and China to see these families of different races become one. 88 min.
