2016 Twin Cities Labor Movie Night Presents: Have You Heard From Johannesburg From Selma to Soweto
February 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pmFREE
This award-winning film traces the success of a coalition of civil rights movement veterans and young activists seeking to transform US foreign policy towards South Africa. Over the course of 1977-1986, this movement’s use of boycotts, divestment, and sanctions led corporations, universities, and governments to end their support of the apartheid regime, which, coupled with on-the-ground struggles in South Africa, changed the course of history.
LABOR MOVIE NIGHT is sponsored by AFSCME Council 5 and Council 5 Next Wave, AFSCME Locals 3800, 2822, 34, 1164, 552, and 607, Teamsters 638, IBEW 292, Minneapolis Labor Review, UNITE-HERE 17, and the East Side Freedom Library.
