STRIDE Movie Night - John Lewis: Good Trouble
This Thursday, join STRIDE online to watch and discuss John Lewis: Good Trouble!
Time: Thursday, November 12th at 6:30 PM | Facebook Event | Zoom Link 
Synopsis: An intimate account of legendary U.S. Representative John Lewis' life, legacy and more than 60 years of extraordinary activism - from the bold teenager on the front lines of the Civil Rights movement to the legislative powerhouse he was throughout his career. After Lewis petitioned Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to help integrate a segregated school in his hometown of Troy, Alabama, King sent "the boy from Troy" a round trip bus ticket to meet with him. From that meeting onward, Lewis became one of King's closest allies. He organized Freedom Rides that left him bloodied or jailed, and stood at the front lines in the historic marches on Washington and Selma. He never lost the spirit of the "boy from Troy" and called on his fellow Americans to get into "good trouble" until his passing on July 17, 2020.

Thursday, November 12th at 6:30 PM| Zoom Link | Donate on PayPal
The first season of Lovecraft Country was popular with viewers. While it had themes of Sci-fi, Horror and Afro- futurism it also dealt with many other important aspects of the Black experience in the United States. During this discussion we will delve deeper into how this show has contributed to  the depictions and handling of themes of  Black History, Hoodoo, Colorism  and Black Queerness in television and society at large.
