“Whose Streets” Documentary Screening

Whose Streets Documentary ScreeningTuesday, January 23, 6:30pm-8:30pm – Bill Cosford Cinema, 5030 Brunson Dr, Coral Gables

Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. This event is cosponsored with the University of Miami’s Cinematic Arts Commission and Hurricane Productions. For more information, please contact the Butler Center for Service and Leadership at
