    The Unafraid (Free Film)

    The Unafraid is a documentary that follows the lives of three DACA students in Georgia, a state that has banned them from attending top state universities and disqualifies them from receiving in-state tuition at any other public college. This film takes an intimate look at the lives of Alejandro, Silvia, and Aldo as they navigate activism, pursue their right to an education, and fight for the rights of their families and communities. The Unafraid shows us what it means to grow up both American and undocumented in the United States. Post film discussion with the film-maker to follow.

    Reel Bad Arabs (Free Film)

    Featuring acclaimed author Dr. Jack Shaheen, this film explores a long line of degrading images of Arabs; from Bedouin bandits and submissive maidens to sinister sheikhs and gun-wielding "terrorists.” The film offers devastating insights into the origin of these stereotypical images, their development at key points in US history, and why they matter so much today. Shaheen shows how the persistence of these images over time has served to naturalize prejudicial attitudes toward Arabs and Arab culture. 50m

    From “The Central Park Five” to “The Exonerated Five” - Yusef Salaam

    On April 19, 1989, a young woman was brutally raped in New York City’s Central Park. Five boys—four black and one Latino—were unjustly and wrongly convicted of the crime in a frenzied case that rocked the city. Decades later, the convictions of the boys, now men, were eventually overturned and they were exonerated. One of those boys, Yusef Salaam, was only 15 years old when his life was upended and changed forever.
