Come see ‘Hands Up Don’t Shoot Our Youth Movement’ here at church.
It’s a documentary filmed in Ferguson on the day of Michael Brown’s funeral, by Ralph Crowder III. We’ll be screening it on Tuesday, March 24th at 6:30 in the Social Hall, and you will have a chance to meet the filmmaker.
Contrasting with the mainstream media coverage and speculation of the events leading up to his death, you will see, hear and feel the perspective of African Americans there about how he died.
Have you struggled with talking to friends, family or co-workers about how we at First Universalist are beginning to understand how racism really works? Invite them to join you for the film. Because the film deals with a widely covered event, it will help deepen your conversations with them about the white privilege that most of us have been so blind to.
