The screening will include a pupu reception and discussion with Black Lives Matter co-founders Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza, who will share their experiences in using art for social change, addressing how art enhanced the national #BlackLivesMatter movement. The talk is followed by the Hawaii premiere of the documentary I Am Not Your Negro.

In this incendiary documentary, Raoul Peck (Lumumba, Sometimes in April) envisions James Baldwin’s unfinished book Remember This House, which the author intended to be a revolutionary account of his friends Medgar Evers, Malcolm X and Martin Luther King, Jr. Screening is followed by a reception for Patrisse Cullors and Alicia Garza. Ticket includes pūpū; drinks available for purchase.
