A zoom link for the discussion and film access link will be sent after registration in a separate email. Access only available for U-M students, staff, and faculty.

ABOUT THE FILM SERIES:

“Activism is inherently a creative endeavor. It takes a radical imagination to be an activist, to envision a world that is not there. It takes imagination and that’s not far from art.” – Ava DuVernay

The BHM committee, MESA’s social connectivity and CCI hope to generate thought provoking discussion, engagement around advocacy, activism and allyship this semester by presenting a series of films huddled around these topics, areas that we believe require critical and intentional reflection year round. Each film presentation will conclude with a discussion from students, professionals, and artists familiar with the themes presented throughout the series and in the film. Each film and discussion will be available virtually and will take place the third Tuesday each month at 5:30 p.m. Tickets are available through MUTO for each film. (2/16 – Just Mercy, 3/16 – Hidden Figures, 4/20 – One Thousand Journeys: The Arab-Americans).
