Update from Spokane Meaningful Movies

by August 10, 2020 0

Hello everyone.  We have been busy here in Spokane.   After we missed our March movie due to COVID, we were able to move online.  We had some great support from the Meaningful Movies Project central office to help us figure out Zoom.  When Black Lives Matters protests happened around the country and in Spokane, we decided to do a special discussion project on Racial Justice.  Many filmmakers allowed their movies to be screened for free online.  So we took advantage of that and hosted discussions on the movies 13th, Selma, Just Mercy, Whose Streets, Activized, Do Not Resist, I Am Not Your Negro and White Like Me.   We have had panel members from Gonzaga Law School, NAACP, SCAR, League of Women Voters and several other community groups.  We have had pretty consistent turn out between 25 and 50 people a week.  It has been a super busy but a very informative journey.  I want to thank everyone who participated and would be happy to answer any questions about our process.  For the future we are moving to the first and third Wednesdays and planning on encouraging our local group to tune into other movies and discussion on Zoom.
