Join the Center for Social Impact as we explore themes of social justice!

We will be looking at how the issues raised in these films impact communities, globally, nationally, and locally, and thinking about how we can make a social impact.

10am: “The Youthbuild Documentary Project”

Documenting four students’ year-long journey toward graduation, the film interweaves dramatic stories of poverty and opportunity, exploring the unforgettable personal struggles to reclaim communities and reinvent fragile lives.

 

1pm: “In My Father’s House”

“In My Father’s House” explores identity and legacy in the African-American family, as Grammy award-winning rapper Che “Rhymefest” Smith and his long-lost father reconnect and try to build a new future in Chicago’s turbulent South Side.

 

4pm: “The Trials of Darryl Hunt”

“The Trials of Darryl Hunt” documents the aftermath of a brutal rape/murder and harrowing wrongful conviction in the modern American South. The film offers an eye-opening, provocative, and haunting examination of community – and a criminal justice system – subject to racial bias and tainted by fear.
