Friday, September 28th

7:00pm; The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till; Dir. Keith Beauchamp, 2005, 70 min

Emmett Till who was visiting family in the Delta had the great misfortune of finding out what Southern Hospitality means when two white men, Roy Bryant and J. W. Milam decided to teach him a lesson for allegedly whistling at a white woman, Bryant's wife. Abducted, severely beaten, and finally thrown into the Tallahatchie River with a weight fastened around his neck with barbed wire, Emmett Till was murdered for one of the oldest forbidden taboos in America's history, addressing a white woman in public. The murderers were later arrested, but were acquitted in a court of law by an all white, all male jury. Emmett did not die in vain. The death of Emmett Till sparked the black resistance of the South, soon to become the American Civil Rights Movement. In this documentary directed by Keith Beauchamp, a family's agony is finally told revealing the truth surrounding the Till case by the people who were there.

Post-screening panel discussion with director Keith Beauchamp and Herb Boyd, moderate by Claudia Williams.

Saturday, September 29th

4:00pm; "Endangered Species & Political Prisoners;" What We Want, What We Believe (Excerpt); Dir. Roz Payne, 2006, 20 min

Interview with Field Marshall Donald Cox who breaks down the purpose of the Black Panther Party.

Every Mother's Son; Dir. Tami Gold, 2004, 52 min 

Iris Baez never meant to become an activist. Kadiatou Diallo never meant to live in the United States, fighting for justice for her son. And Doris Busch Boskey never thought she'd become a spokesperson against police brutality. This film profiles three New York mothers who unexpectedly find themselves united to seek justice and transform their grief into an opportunity for profound social change. The victims' stories are tragic, and the courage subsequently shown by their mothers heroic. As one witness says, 'As long as there's a mother, we'll continue to fight.'

Post-screening Q&A with director Tami Gold.

Saturday, September 29th

7:00pm; "Endangered Species & Political Prisoners"; Sonia Sanchez: Shake Loose Memories; Dir. Jamal Joseph, 2011, 67 min
