SCREENINGS

I’ve been to numerous film screenings over the years and from my perspective “From Selma to Stonewall” struck a chord with the audience, more so than all the other films combined. The film not only encourages much needed dialogue it also has the potential to provoke action.

NORTH CAROLINA TOUR SCHEDULE 

October 17 - 20, 2017

Raleigh

Tuesday, October 177-9 p.m. - Fairmont United Methodist Church, 2501 Clark Avenue, Raleigh, NC.

Co-sponsors: Fairmont UMC, MFSA-NC, and Reconciling United Methodists and Friends NC. 

"Marilyn and Gil, drawing on their histories as veteran civil and human rights advocates, are the perfect ones to tell this story of the intersection of racism, sexism, heterosexism and religion in both movements. I’m delighted that people in North Carolina will have the chance to not only see this story unfold on screen, but to meet and engage with its creators."   ~ Jimmy Creech, activist for LGBTQ inclusion in faith communities

Durham

Wednesday, October 187p.m. - Duke University, Smith Warehouse, Ahmadieh Family Lecture Hall, 114 S. Buchanan Blvd, Durham, NC.

Co-sponsors: the Pauli Murray House, Duke Divinity School, Duke University Center for Sexual & Gender Diversity, and LGBTQ Center of Durham.

"Pauli Murray believed that human rights are indivisible. From Selma to Stonewall makes such important connections between the movements for civil rights and LGBTQ rights, connections Pauli Murray would wholeheartedly support. We are excited about amplifying this important conversation in Durham and at Duke by hosting both the film and its directors."  ~Barbara Lau, director of the Pauli Murray Project, Duke Human Rights Center at FHI

Charlotte

Thursday, October 195:30-7:30p.m. - Temple Beth El, 5101 Providence Rd, Charlotte, NC.

Co-sponsors: Freedom Center for Social Justice, Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice, Campus Pride, Time Out Youth, North Carolina Council of Churches, and Mecklenburg Ministries.

There was never a better time to have this film shown in our city. So much of the tension and racial mistrust in Charlotte is caused by chasms built by those who would keep us apart. The filmmakers have shown a rich history that helps debunk many of the alternative truths that no longer serve us well and models a path to new possibilities.
— Bishop Tonyia Rawls, Pastor at Charlotte’s Sacred Souls Community Church, UCC

Friday, October 207p.m. - UNC Wilmington McNeil Hall, Room MC-1005.

Sponsored by The Frank Harr Foundation with support from GROW Community Service Endowment Fund, a component fund of the North Carolina Community Foundation.
