The uprising in Ferguson is one the most inspiring movements in modern day history. It sparked a nation-wide movement where people all over the U.S. of different backgrounds declared that Black Lives Matter. It also gained international support as the word saw that the killing of unarmed people of color could no longer be considered isolated events but intentional acts on behalf of the police force. "The Mike Brown Rebellion", produced by Rebel Diaz, is a play by play of this uprising from the direct perspectives of local activists, businesses and residents; as opposed to national leaders like Al Sharpton and the mass media. It peels back the layers of the conflict in Ferguson and helps make the connection to a worldwide system in place designed to exploit people. Within the course of documenting the Ferguson uprising, many other issues are revealed; like for example the question of freedom of the press as we see the press corralled and fed false information from the police themselves, the massive amount of money poured into militarizing the police force, and even gentrification. With all these issues, Ferguson represents a microcosm of events happening in cities all over the U.S. Join us for the presentation and discussion to be lead by Raquelle Seda. Admission is free, but donations appreciated!
