Witch Hunt - Documenting the Exoneration of the Last Witch of Salem

Documenting the Exoneration of the Last Witch of Salem

Witch Hunt

Presenting The Last Witch documentary filmmakers Annika Hylmo and Cassandra Roberts Hasseltine. We discuss the exoneration effort of Elizabeth Johnson Junior, who was a Salem Witch Trials convicted witch from Andover, MA. She was overlooked during previous exonerations but has now been cleared after 330 years. The Last Witch documents how the community came together for the effort, including North Andover Middle School teacher Carrie LaPierre and her students, historian Richard Hite, and MA State Senator Diana Dizoglio. We look for answers to our advocacy questions: Why do we witch hunt? How do we witch hunt? How do we stop hunting witches?
