“The Road to Justice” viewing

The Road to Justice follows two groups on a civil rights tour through the American South as they reckon with the country’s legacy of racial injustice. The first is a group of predominately Black middle school students from Chicago, while the second is a group of older, mostly white

Americans who lived through the 1960s Civil Rights era. Both groups come face-to-face with the leads and everyday activists whose courage and perseverance paved the way for future

generations. Does the arc of history truly bend toward justice? What does justice mean, when the problems of our past are only a grandparent away? How can we heal as a nation without honestly engaging with our history? Discussion and refreshments to follow. Free and open to the public.
