For Black History Month. The acclaimed 2017 documentary I Am Not Your Negro is “a journey into black history that connects the past of the Civil Rights movement to the present of #BlackLivesMatter,” and “a radical, up-to-the-minute examination of race in America, using James Baldwin’s original words and flood of rich archival material.” Mature subject matter.
Free admission. (Small donations for costs and refreshments accepted.) The film will be followed by a discussion, with special guest Rosemary Sadlier, who played a lead role in bringing Black History Month to Ontario.
This film and dialogue event is hosted by the Unitarian Fellowship of Peterborough, as part of a new jointly curated film series with the Beth Israel Congregation.
