[IN-PERSON] Boulder International Film Festival: Shared Legacies

Date: June 27, 2021
Time: 5:45 pm - 7:30 pm

Divisive seeds of hate are taking root anew in the American landscape. People who lived through the Civil Rights era of the 1960s will remember
that common cause was found as Jewish leaders, often at their peril, backed Dr. King’s efforts at racial equality and harmony. Pivotal events come alive
in this film through a treasure trove of archival materials, narrated by eyewitnesses,
activists, Holocaust survivors, and civil rights leaders, including Congressman
John Lewis, Ambassador Andrew Young, Rabbi Alvin Sugarman, Rabbi Peter S. Berg,
Oscar-winning actor Louis Gossett Jr., members of the King family, and many others.
This potent, inspiring story of unity, empathy, and partnership validates the ubiquity of
the human experience, and how freedom and equality for all can be achieved only when people come together.


This screening is presented by the Boulder International Film Festival in partnership with the Boulder JCC and will be offered at Boulder High School, 1604 Arapahoe Avenue, Boulder, CO

Sunday, June 27 | 5:45 - 7:30 pm | $18
