Hello Conversation members!
Fruitvale Station Trailer
The Conversation will be viewing this film at 11:55 am on Sunday, August 4 at The Grand Cinema and we will hold a discussion following the film in The Grand's meeting space. If you have some time, stop by and check it out.
This film is a crushing blow to the senses but also an important blow as the nation looks at stand your ground laws and considers a new directive to replace the discretionary judgment of law enforcement. The film is set to leave before next Friday so I hope that if you can;t join us that you will fit it in.
The movie is 1 hour and 25 minutes long. If you would like to arrive after the film is finished please arrive at 1:30 for the discussion.
If you are in need of financial support to view the film on Sunday, please contact us via fb message.

Looking forward to seeing you all!

This film takes a detailed look at the apartheid analogy commonly used to describe the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Narrated by Alice Walker (author of The Color Purple), Roadmap to Apartheid is as much a historical document of the rise and fall of apartheid in South Africa, as it is a film about why many Palestinians feel they are living in an apartheid system today, and why an increasing number of people around the world agree with them (http://roadmaptoapartheid.
"...it is long past time ...to remove the blinders from their eyes and grapple with the reality that Israel becoming an apartheid state or like South Africa in its denial of equal rights is not a future danger, as three former Israeli prime ministers — Ehud Barak, Ehud Olmert and David Ben Gurion — have warned, but a present-day reality." Archbishop Desmond Tutu
