From Selma to Stonewall: Are We There Yet? – Film Screening
June 5, 2019 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Civil Rights and LGBTQ equality movements; are the two similar, or are they fundamentally different? Do they have the same goals? Why are they often in conflict with one another?
From Selma to Stonewall, explores these questions through the journey of two unlikely friends; Gil Caldwell, an 80 year-old, black, heterosexual, retired preacher and civil rights leader and Marilyn Bennet, a 52 year-old, white, lesbian activist and author.
The film is a powerful documentary that begins by looking at the Civil Rights Movement in Selma and the LGBT Rights Movement that was galvanized at the Stonewall riots, then delves into some of today’s most explosive and discussed subjects: racial injustice, police brutality, transgender discrimination, LGBTQ homelessness, and where those issues intersect.
Free and open to the public. Presented as part of ArtRage Gallery’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of Stonewall.
