Please join Augsburg Women Engaged (AWE) and valued Augsburg campus and community partners in watching this groundbreaking film honoring the life and death of George Floyd as well as exploring the larger issues of police brutality, systemic racism, and anti-Black racism. The film uplifts the voices of Minnesotan artists, scholars, and community members who have been historically and negatively impacted by these injustices, through a collection of interviews, music, and poetry.

Immediately following the viewing, there will be a 30-minute discussion with the following esteemed guests:

Austene Van, the filmmaker and Founder/Artistic Director of New Dawn Theatre
Joanne K. Reeck, M.A., Augsburg Vice President for Equity and Inclusion
Dr. Terrance Kwame-Ross, Augsburg Associate Professor & Chair of Education
Dr. Michael Lansing, Augsburg Associate Professor & Chair of History
