In this dark Era of Trump, the timing couldn’t be better for a film about the power of protest.
From Selma to Stonewall: Are We There Yet? compares and contrasts the conflicts at the heart of the black and LGBT civil rights movements while following a black heterosexual preacher and a white lesbian activist as they look for common ground between their fights for equality.
Rev. Gil Caldwell, a long-time activist and friend of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Marilyn Bennett, a writer and activist, will be available for Q&A after several early February screenings around town of this powerful film.
Life-affirming changes happened as a result of the events at Selma and Stonewall, so the film gives us immense hope for what we can accomplish in the face of today’s presidential leadership if we just stand up and fight. Together.
Maybe scream a little, too, when appropriate.
