A Reckoning in Boston Film Screening

Everyday Democracy held a special screening of A Reckoning in Boston sponsored by CT Humanities. Following the film there was a deeply compelling post film discussion with the filmmaker James Rutenbeck and subject/producer Kafi Dixon, moderated by Gwen Whiting of Everyday Democracy. Watch the Q&A below.

This film screening is part of our kick-off to updating our Facing Racism in a Diverse Nation guide.

Facing Racism in a Diverse Nation is one of our most important tools for helping communities talk about race and understand how structural racism affects families and has shaped their communities. The guide supports pathways to action that contribute to a more just community.


     "Don’t miss this powerful film that lays bare the transformative force of the humanities in our lives in these turbulent and troubling times!”
