Event Details

In the wake of the shooting of Michael Brown by police in 2014, a social justice movement grew among the youth of Ferguson, Missouri. Called “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot,” this movement caught the world’s attention and created a unique opportunity to hear the voices of people most affected by these events.

Journalist and filmmaker Ralph Crowder III traveled to Ferguson and interviewed a range of people, capturing their reactions, emotions and thoughts on the event and the relationship between police and communities of color. The resulting documentary illustrates the impact that unresolved issues from history have on lives and communities today.

This special screening of the film will be followed by a discussion with producer/director Ralph Crowder III.
