Facilitated by Terrion L. Williamson, MSU Department of English.
In coordination with One Book, One Community and the Project 60/50 initiative.
Ryan Coogler's powerful film Fruitvale Station tells the story of the last 24 hours of the life of Oscar Grant, a young African-American man shot to death by a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer on a subway platform on Oakland, California. Please join us for a screening and conversation after the film about the abiding impact and broad social and historical effects of race and racism.
The Main Library is wheelchair accessible via the south entrance. Persons with disabilities may request accommodations by calling Susan Garmo at 517.884.6454 one week before an event. Requests received after that time will be met when possible.
