On Saturday March 11th at 4pm, join the UUCSR Social Justice Committee and Veatch Program for a special screening of a new film about Rosa Parks with the film’s director, Yoruba Richen. Rosa Parks is one of the most well-known U.S. women of the 20th century, and yet much of what has been taught about her is narrow, limited, and at times wrong.
This is changing thanks to the release in 2021 of the young adult book, The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks, by Jeanne Theoharis—published by longtime Veatch grantee Beacon Press. Now, it is a documentary film with the same title, streaming on Peacock.
The movie is appropriate for adults and youth 13+. There will be a special activity, including a story, a game, and a craft for children younger than 13 led by Lifespan Religious Education Coordinator, Carson Jones in room 15 of the religious education wing. Childcare for the very youngest children will also be available in room 2.
There is no charge for this event, but registration is necessary. We invite you to bring a non-perishable food item for a local food pantry. Register at https://uucsr.churchcenter.com/registrations/events/1602241
Co-sponsored by the UUCSR Social Justice Committee, the Racial Justice Sub-committee, the Lifespan Religious Education Committee, and the Unitarian Universalist Veatch Program at Shelter Rock.
