Death Cafe in Los Angeles with Betsy Trapasso


Death Café Los Angeles
is proudly showing the PBS POV documentary

Homegoings
A film by Christine Turner

“Homegoings” is an inspiring portrait of a legendary Harlem         undertaker and African-American funeral traditions

Isaiah Owens always knew he had a calling: to send the dearly departed "Home."
"When it comes to death and funerals, African-American people, we have our own way," Isaiah Owens states in the new documentary Homegoings. "It has worked for us throughout the ages; it has kept us balanced, sane. And everybody know[s] that it's going to be a sad, good time."
