Program Description

Event Details

In celebration of Black History Month, join us for a screening of the award winning social documentary film THE PRESUMPTION OF GUILT based on Harvard law Professor Charles Ogletree’s best selling book, The Presumption Of Guilt: The Arrest Of Henry Louis Gates Jr. And Race, Class, And Crime In America.

In this unique collaboration between author and filmmaker, the camera lens is used to highlight the complex issue of race, class and crime in American society and to shine the light on that dreaded subject that we have failed to confront. America can no longer afford to ignore the issue of racism.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the film’s creative personnel Hafiz Farid and Shelley Grodner Seidenstein, moderated by Linda Tarrant-Reid, author, historian, freelance journalist, photographer and community advocate.
