From Selma to Stonewall Film Screening
The ACLU of Delaware will host film screenings of From Selma to Stonewall at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 4, at the Unitarian Universalists of Southern Delaware church, and at 3:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 11, at the First Unitarian Church of Wilmington.
As the fight for racial and queer justice continues, From Selma to Stonewall offers a history lesson on the intersection of the civil rights and LGBTQ movements.
The film features the Rev. Gil Caldwell, a black, straight preacher and Civil Rights Movement foot soldier, and Marilyn Bennett, a white, lesbian author and activist, who form an unusual bond as they seek to find the intersection between the Civil Rights and LGBTQ+ Equality movements. They start out exploring the similarities, differences, and conflicts between the two movements and find themselves in the midst of today’s struggles—hate crimes, anti-blackness, police brutality, anti-LGBTQ hostility, queer youth homelessness, and white supremacy.
The screenings will be followed by facilitated discussions, where attendees will be able to talk about the themes of the film and what it means for our present and future.
Admission is free for the general public. Registration is available at: aclu-de.org under “Events.” ▼
