"3 1/2 Minutes 10 Bullets" Film Screening & ConversationTuesday, March 22, 5:30pm-8pm – Miami Dade College – Wolfson Campus, 300 Northeast 2nd Avenue, Auditorium, Room 1261, Miami

Join for an exclusive screening of the captivating documentary “3 1/2 Minutes 10 Bullets.” This riveting film captures the courtroom trial of Michael Dunn, an individual who shot into a car because he took issue with loud music being played and was subsequently charged with first degree murder for the resulting death of unarmed 17 year old Jordan Davis. In an objective account of the tragedy, the film explores the complex issues of Dunn’s assertion of the Stand Your Ground Law (“SYG”) defense, implicit and explicit racial bias, and the impact that SYG has on the families of victims and other constituencies. After the screening, engage in a dynamic discussion of the issues raised by the film, including a panel featuring community leaders and experts, including
– Ron Davis and Lucia McBath, the parents of Jordan Davis
– J.D. Patterson, Director, Miami Dade Police Department
– Ed Shohat, Miami Dade County Community Relations Board
