About

One of the most unfortunate realities of the coming year is that on April 4, 2018, we will bear witness to the 50th Anniversary of the assassination of the, “Man of Peace,” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What makes such an anniversary all the more tragic, is the current social, political and cultural state of affairs in this country. It is as if we have been thrown, in a whiplash like motion back in time, to April 3, 1968, the eve of his assassination. In Observance of the Celebration of his life and legacy, we are proud to continue the conversation and the work he left behind. On Saturday, January 13, 2018, please join us for a public screening of I Am Not Your Negro, followed by a conversation featuring renowned educator, anti-racism activist, and creator of the Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise, Ms. Jane Elliott.

Based on the unfinished writings of James Baldwin, I Am Not Your Negro explores concepts of blackness in America through the lens of the assassinations of Malcolm X, Dr. King and Medgar Evers. Jane Elliott, the creator of the Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise, began her anti-racism workshops and advocacy the day after Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. was killed, and has continued to be a leader and educator in anti-racism to this day. As such, 2018 also marks the 50th Anniversary of her groundbreaking Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise.

Rize Fellowship and Union Church invite you to join us on Saturday, January 13, 2018, for a public screening of I Am Not Your Negro. By showing this film and engaging in discussion with Jane Elliott, we look to develop a stronger community conscience of how institutionalized racism affects communities of color, and how we can respond together to end racism.

Brunch included.
