Racial Justice Film Festival

November 3, 2018, 2:00pm - 10:00pm
Adanti Student Center - Theater

Join us for a series of exciting films highlighting issues of racial justice!  This will be a film festival with screening of several films related to racial justice, each followed by a lively discussion, along with snacks, and other media presentations. Here's a sampling of the films:

  • Accidental Courtesy: Daryl Davis, Race & America. Daryl Davis is an accomplished musician who was played all over the world. He also has an unusual hobby, particularly for a middle aged black man. When not displaying his musical chops, Daryl likes to meet and befriend members of the Ku Klux Klan. When many of these people eventually leave the Klan with Daryl's support, Daryl keeps their robes and hoods; building his collection piece by piece, story by story, person by person.

  • White Right: Meeting the Enemy. Meeting The Enemy sees Deeyah sitting down face-to-face with Neo-Nazis and white nationalists after receiving death threats from the Far Right movement as a result of giving an interview advocating diversity and multiculturalism. In the film Deeyah tries to get behind the hatred and the violent ideology, to try to understand why people embrace far right extremism.

  • 13th. An unflinching, well-informed and thoroughly researched look at the American system of incarceration, specifically how the prison industrial complex affects people of color.

  • Get Out. A black photographer's weekend meeting his white girlfriend's parents takes a terrifying turn in this horror hit from Jordan Peele.
