DONT SLEEP Discussion Series: Whose Streets

August 29, 2017 @ 7:00 am - 10:00 pm

WhoseStreets1cTold by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, WHOSE STREETS? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they are the story. WHOSE STREETS? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.

After the movie, join us for a panel discussion on the themes in the film and the role of grassroots activism in addressing social justice issues and divisive community engagement.

Panelists include:

Brittany Talissa King from Black Lives Matter of Columbus
Stanley Njuguna of Students Against State Violence- Indy, Community Activist, Shawn Brooks, and Jorden Giger of Nu Black Power Movement of South Bend
