FROM SELMA TO STONEWALL IN WASHINGTON, DC

Screen+Shot+2019-05-29+at+12.42.11+PM.jpg

A night of storytelling: stories of personal experiences of discrimination, finding one’s footing as an activist, and insights into how one can get involved in fighting civil rights abuses today.

In partnership with Busboys and Poets and Film Fest DC+, co-executive producers Marilyn Bennett and the Rev. Gil Caldwell screened From Selma to Stonewall: Are We There Yet? to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising and to inspire new activists to get involved in the present day interweave of justice issues.
