Description

Liberation Study Hall: 

In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Freedom Schools of 1964, the Boston Ujima Project proudly presents "Liberation Study Hall," a year-long exploration of historical figures, schools of thought, experiments and sites that have contributed to shaping our contemporary movements and global landscape.

Event Description:

"When an individual is protesting society's refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him." - Bayard Rustin

​​​​​Join us for a film screening and group discussion of “Rustin,” a 2023 American biographical drama directed by George C. Wolfe. The film follows the life and organizing practice of Bayard Rustin, a prominent Civil Rights activist celebrated for his role as a key strategist of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. After each viewing we will participate in a talk back co facilitated by Nia Evans and Kristen Halbert.
