The East Side Freedom Library invites you to “At the River I Stand”: MLK Day Screening/Discussion on Monday, January 15 @ 7:00PM-9:00PM.
For East Side Freedom Library’s commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day, we will screen and discuss “At the River I Stand,” the award-winning documentary about the 1968 Memphis sanitation workers’ strike, during which Dr. King was assassinated.
This 58-minute documentary brings into sharp relief issues that have only become more urgent in the intervening years: the connection between economic and civil rights, debates over strategies for change, the demand for full inclusion of African Americans in American life and the fight for dignity for public employees and all working people.
