Please join Conscientious Projector for a screening of Capturing the Flag on Thursday August 8, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. at the Armory Center for the Arts. With presidential campaigns well under way for the 2020 election, voter suppression remains as a potentially crucial impediment to the fundamental exercise of our democracy, the sanctity of the core U.S. principle of one person-one vote, and the continuing struggle for racial justice in America.
Producer-director Anne de Mare brings these issues to light in her vivid account of a small group of dedicated voting rights activists monitoring the 2016 election at a Cumberland County, North Carolina polling place. Featuring the NAACP’s Rev. Dr. William J. Barber. A community discussion follows the film.
Armory Center for the Arts is located at 145 N. Raymond Ave. in Pasadena.
