Christ Church, the Easton Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (EDIT) and the Easton Public Library are pleased to announce their Racial Justice Film Series continues on Thursday, March 9 from 7 – 10 p.m. at the Easton Public Library. Gavin Guerra, who directed this second film in the series, “Let the People Decide,” will lead the discussion after the viewing.
The film documents the 60+ year history of racial discrimination and voting violations in Mississippi, in contempt of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 and the 15th Amendment both guaranteeing all Americans the right to vote. It also reveals how voting discrimination today is now cloaked in false allegations of fraud and voter suppression. Please register here to attend.
“I am so thrilled to be partnering with Christ Church and EDIT on this important and timely initiative,” said Library Director Lynn Zaffino. “We hope many will join us for this film viewing as well as the next two in this series.”
Christ Church’s Priest-in-Charge Rev. Ally Brundige notes, “Our first film generated discussions that left many seeking voter-driven solutions; Director Guerra’s presence will no doubt encourage thoughtful and enlightening conversation. We hope this discussion will inspire us to each, in our own way, act to address racial injustice wherever it stands.”
Whendi Cook Broderick, Co-Chair of the Easton Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (EDIT) adds, “EDIT to explore these topics with the community through film and dialogue. Conversation after led by Mr. Guerra will be a great opportunity to foster deeper understanding and connection.”
This four-film series is free and open to all.
