In late 2019 The Social Justice Committee at Maxwell Street led a series of film viewings and discussions to spark conversation about dismantling systemic racism both as individuals and as a Church. Below you will find trailers for the films that were featured as well as a Resource Guide for each film.
Selma- A movie portrayal of the Civil Rights movement and the march from Selma to Montgomery
Harriet- A new release depicting the life of Harriet Tubman and the Underground Railroad
13th – A documentary look at the racial inequality in the United States, especially the disproportionate number of African Americans in prison
