As part of the programming for Until The Flood, join up for a film screening of the documentary Whose Streets?, an unflinching look at the Ferguson (Missouri) uprising in the aftermath of the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by police.
About the Film:
Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy.
Empowered parents, artists and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance.
