A screening of the film, “Whose Streets?” will also feature a discussion at 6 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 9 at Film Space auditorium, Founders Hall, Saint Paul Campus, 700 E. Seventh St.
The film documents the events and activism of the demonstrations in Ferguson, Missouri after the shooting death of Michael Brown. The event marked a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis County. Grief, long-standing tension, and renewed anger united the residents to hold vigils and protest the tragedy. As the National Guard descended on Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis, these community members became the torchbearers of resistance.
This screening is sponsored by the Dean of the College of Liberal Arts, Office of Diversity and Equity, Social Science Department, Student Life and Leadership, and the Institute for Community Engagement and Scholarship.
