This powerful film envisions the book James Baldwin never finished, a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words, as read by actor Samuel L. Jackson. Alongside a flood of rich archival material, the film draws upon Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.Join us for snacks and conversation before the film. Afterwards, there will be a panel of speakers as well as time for community discussion. Doors open at 5PM; Movie starts at 6PM.

Date and Time: June 21, 2019; 6PM
