FROM SELMA TO STONEWALL

IN WASHINGTON, DC

BUSBOYS AND POETS ANACOSTIA

Monday, May 13, 6:30-8:30 pm

 

Join us for 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 will be screening their documentary, From Selma to Stonewall: Are We There Yet? to mark the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and to inspire new activists to get involved in the present day interweave of justice issues.
