Please join us in supporting Black Lives Matter LA! We will be screening a documentary film about Anne Braden, a white antiracist organizer. After the screening, Patrisse Cullors (Co-Founder of Black Lives Matter) and Jason David (Co-Founder of AWARE-LA) will discuss the film and its connection to today's movement to end white supremacy.
All proceeds from the night will be donated directly to Black Lives Matter LA! The goal is #35Kin60Days to support 9 activists' legal defense and general support.
Suggested donation is $10.

About the Documentary:
"Anne Braden: Southern Patriot is a documentary film exploring the extraordinary life and legacy of this American civil rights leader. After she was charged with sedition for attempting to desegregate a Louisville, Kentucky neighborhood in 1954, Braden used the attacks to turn herself “inside out” and embrace a lifetime of racial justice organizing matched by few whites in American history.... In the film Braden recalls 60 years of activism that intersected and linked issues of race with civil liberties, class, gender, sexuality, economic justice, environmentalism, and peace. She delivers a powerful message on the dangers of racism and white supremacy, why it poses such an obstacle to social change, and the necessity of whites organizing with people of color to eliminate it."
