Dispatches From Cleveland is a documentary in five parts that closely examines the early 21st century, rust-belt city of Cleveland, Ohio, one of the most racially divided cities in America in the wake of the police murder of 12-year-old Tamir Rice. The film weaves together the stories of ordinary people - long shaken by police misconduct, social discrimination, and poverty - whose love for their home pushes them to work together to bring about real change.
Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with Dispatches From Cleveland director Catherine Gund, Elle Hearns (organizer, speaker, writer, transgender rights activist and founder and executive director of the Marsha P. Johnson Institute), Aaron Morrison (Senior Staff Writer for The Movement at Mic), Kei Williams (#BlackLivesMatter NYC) and moderated by Maria Hinojosa (founder and president of the Futuro Media Group and anchor and executive producer of Latino USA on NPR).
Reception to follow panel.
