Whose Streets?

September 19, 2017, 7:00 PM

Free

Screening and Q&A with Director Sabaah Folayan

Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis. Grief, long-standing racial tensions, and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and to protest this latest tragedy. Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they have lived the story. Whose Streets? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.

Sponsored by the Oak Institute for Human Rights with support from the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs, African-American Studies Department, the Center for the Arts and Humanities, the Pugh Community Board, and the Cinema Studies Program.
