Screening & Discussion: “An Act of Terror”

October 1, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

As part of the 2020 Virtual Diaspora Festival of Black & Independent film, the Stone Center will present “An Act of Terror.” Directed by Ashley Brim, the 15 minute short – based on a true story – explores the ongoing oppression of the African American community at the hands of the criminal justice system. In the Jim Crow South, Virginia Christian, a 16-year-old African American maid, dreams of a better life for herself. Those dreams are shattered when she is attacked by her white employer, setting off a series of tragic events that end in Virginia being tried for murder.

A link to this film will be provided for advanced viewing prior to the virtual discussion via Zoom.
