Join the Conversation: Race, Gender, and Social Justice in Spike Lee's Get on the Bus
(Movie / Film)
Spike Lee's powerful film Get on the Bus chronicles the journey of a group of African-American men headed to the 1995 Million Man March, a peaceful demonstration which aimed to dispel stereotypes of black men, unify the community, and promote positive social change. This film was selected for discussion on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as it addresses the impact and social effects of race and racism, humanizes the struggles of individuals in the African-American community, and demonstrates efforts to move forward. Please join us for a conversation of clips from the film focusing on critical themes of race, gender, and social justice.
