WVU Libraries and the WVU Humanities Center are partnering with the Department of Geology and Geography this Earth Day as part of the Local to Global Film Series. Join us online for a group viewing of “The Return of Navajo Boy” on Wednesday, April 22, at 7 p.m. via Kanopy, the WVU Libraries’ streaming film database.

“The Return of Navajo Boy, an official selection of the Sundance Film Festival and PBS, is an internationally acclaimed documentary that reunited a Navajo family and triggered a federal investigation into uranium contamination. It tells the story of Elsie Mae Begay, whose history in pictures reveals an incredible and ongoing struggle for environmental justice.”

How it works:

  • Register for with a valid WVU email address here:
  • You’ll receive the Zoom link and instructions via email the day of the film.
  • Join the Zoom meeting at the designated start time for a short introduction and we’ll get going with discussion to follow, facilitated by Geography doctoral candidate Alanna Higgins.

The Local to Global Film Series is brought to you by WVU Libraries and the WVU Humanities Center. Online viewings will take place twice a month on Wednesdays. One film each month will be family-friendly, with a 4 p.m. start time. The other will start at 7 p.m. with an introduction and discussion afterward. See you online.
