In collaboration with The Texas Black Arts Foundation, join us for our monthly Black movie night and discussion! This month we're showing Let The Fire Burn, a documentary about the Philadelphia based group, MOVE.

"In 1985, police bombed the Philadelphia community occupied by members of the black counterculture group MOVE resulting in the destruction of sixty-one homes and the death of eleven residents - five of them children. It was only later discovered that authorities decided to '...let the fire burn.' Using only archival news coverage and interviews, first-time filmmaker Osder has brought to life one of the most tumultuous and largely forgotten clashes between government and citizens in modern American history."

After the film screening and discussion we will be hosting a banner/sign making session for an upcoming panel regarding policing and police violence along with some idea generation so please join us!!
