Social Justice Film Series

The Social Justice Committee invites you to: A short series of movie and documentary viewings and discussions as we continue to explore together our role as a church and individuals in dismantling systemic racism. 

October 20th: Selma- A movie portrayal of the Civil Rights movement and the march from Selma to Montgomery 

November 3rd: Harriet- A new release depicting the life of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad (field trip to Hamburg theatre)

November 17th: 13th- A documentary look at the racial inequality in the United States, especially the disproportionate number of African Americans in prison

December 1st: Painted in Stone: The Kentucky Mural- An independent documentary about the controversy surrounding “The Kentucky Mural” at the University of Kentucky

How will the viewing take place?

Every other Sunday after worship in the Marshall Parlor, with short discussion afterwards.

Will there be lunch?

A light lunch will be provided each week the viewing takes place at church.

What if I can’t make it to every viewing?

That’s okay! Come when you can and view the others on your own or with a group of others

Can I participate without attending the viewing?

YES! We hope every congregation member will watch these movies or documentaries alongside us. If you cannot come to the viewings, you can watch them in your own time. There will be handouts of reflection/discussion questions available to take home. 

What if I can’t access one of the films?

We are working to find ways to access each of these films that are available to everyone.
