Black History Month Film Screening – Free Angela and All Political Prisoners
Throughout the month of February, there will be various indie film screenings that showcase the artistic imagery and creative direction of Black film producers. Each film takes you into a world of fiction or truth exploring cultural narratives around sexual identity, social activism, political oppression, and personal freedom.
Hailed by the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival as “a fascinating chronicle of justice and strength,” Free Angela and All Political Prisoners tells the dramatic story of how a young professor's social justice activism implicates her in a botched kidnapping attempt that ends with a bloody shootout, four dead, and her name on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted list. This free event is open to the public.
All are welcome. Snacks will be provided.
