A local group of BIPOC youth will be hosting a drive-in movie screening and panel discussion on Saturday (Aug. 15) at Legacy Drive-In.
From 8 to 11:30 p.m., BlackBuster will be hosting the screening of ‘Selma,’ followed by a discussion around racial injustice.
A panel of local community leaders, activists and organizers including Parker Johnson, Table Talk creator; Ariel Reyes, Palenke Greens creator; and Lisa Gunderson of One Love Consulting (moderated by Pam Buisa) will discuss “Racial Justice: Organizing from the Roots.” Attendees will be car-viewing and can tune in through their vehicle’s radio.
The panel will also be streamed live on the BlackBuster Facebook page and recorded for those who are unable to attend the in-person screening.
This is BlackBuster’s second screening. The first film featured was ‘Whose Streets’ and a panel that featured Victoria Coun. Sharmarke Dubow, Malachi Ince and Pam Buisa discussed policing.
Tickets to the screening and panel are $30 and can be purchased at bit.ly/2POXVYa.
