Racial Justice Film Series @ First Universalist Church  | Denver | Colorado | United States

Join us for a viewing and facilitated discussion of I Am Not Your Negro, Raoul Peck’s 2016 documentary based on James Baldwin’s unfinished manuscript, Remember This House.

From Wikipedia:

“Narrated by actor Samuel L. Jackson, the film explores the history of racism in the United States through Baldwin’s reminiscences of civil rights leaders Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King, Jr, as well as his personal observations of American history. Read more.

A discussion will follow.

Note our new schedule-– beginning in, February we now meet on the third Monday of each month at First Universalist Church of Denver to watch and discuss a film related to race, racism, and racial justice. This series is co-hosted by First Universalist Church of Denver and First Plymouth Congregational Church. All who are interested in respectful discussion of these issues are welcome to join in the discussion.

We have a variety of films planned for the 2017-2018 calendar:

Documentaries: Cracking the Codes (2014)I Am Not Your Negro (2016)

Biopic: Malcom X

Recent Dramas: Loving (2016)

Older Dramas: Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner and To Kill a Mockingbird– Come re-watch classic films and discuss how perspectives on race have, or haven’t changed.
