Register HERE for an enlightening evening of short film, community connection, and compelling discussions as we come together to honor and embrace Juneteenth.

The Event:

  • Free Film Screening: Sit back, relax, and immerse yourself in thought-provoking films that shed light on the significance of Juneteenth and the enduring spirit of freedom.
  • Compelling Community Discussion: Engage in dynamic conversations with fellow community members and guest speakers, sharing perspectives, insights, and experiences sparked by the films we watch.
  • Meaningful Connections: Forge new connections, build bridges, and strengthen the bonds within our diverse community as we unite to commemorate this significant historical milestone.

The Films:

  • Shut Up & Paint Painter Titus Kaphar uses film as a medium while grappling with an insatiable art market seeking to silence his activism.
  • I’m Free Now, You Are Free A story about the reunion and repair between Mike Africa Jr and his mother Debbie Africa—a formerly incarcerated political prisoner of the MOVE9.
  • StoryCorps’ Shorts: Labor of Love | Sylvia’s Legacy 

Let’s not only deepen our understanding of this pivotal moment in history but also actively contribute to the ongoing dialogue surrounding racial justice and social progress. Together, we can learn, grow, and inspire positive change.
