ArchCity Defenders, a non-profit civil rights law firm based in St. Louis, presents our second annual summer Racial Justice Film Series. In the second installment, we feature the first episode in the docuseries Time: The Kalief Browder Story, which traces the tragic case of Kalief Browder, a Bronx teen who spent three horrific years in jail, despite never being convicted of a crime. The screening will feature a panel discussion following the film which is intended to spark a community conversation that connects the stories and themes within the film with current and historical realities in St. Louis.
“We are so excited to bring back the Racial Justice Film Series this summer, which has enabled ArchCity Defenders and our partners to continue providing opportunities for learning, reflection, and critical community dialogue,” said Blake Strode, Executive Director of ArchCity Defenders. “The three films featured in the series speak to a number of deep and enduring challenges that we must face head-on if we are truly committed to the cause of racial justice. We hope that attendees will enjoy and be inspired to act.”
All screenings are free and open to the public. Follow our Facebook event page to learn more about each film screening as the dates approach: https://www.facebook.com/events/2417838898262669/
