"BANISHED" Film Screening and Discussion - FREE

>From the 1860s to the 1920s, dozens of towns and counties across
America violently expelled entire African American communities,
forcing thousands of black families to flee their homes. A century
later, these towns remain all white. BANISHED tells the story of three
of these communities and their black descendants, who return to learn
shocking histories.

We will hold a discussion after the film with representatives from
United for A Fair Economy, Community Change, and City-Wide Dialogues.

Friday, January 18th
