Movie Circle 

This is a new page section under construction.

For moviegoers who enjoy viewing films with good company and great food (during non-pandemic times), this is for you! Meeting monthly at various times to suit your schedule, come out and enjoy one of the many new (and old) movies with racial themes, then stick around afterward to talk with others about what you saw, sharing perspectives at a local eatery.  The perfect dinner and movie combo!

Co-Conveners: Barbara S. Brown and Julie Appleby

Upcoming September Movie Discussion

The September movie selection is  "13th"   and our ZOOM  conversation about this movie is scheduled for Monday, September 28 at 6:30pm. Movie participants are asked to view the movie prior to the ZOOM discussion and come prepared to discuss the movie. For the "13th" movie, participants are asked to submit discussion questions  prior to September 28, 2020.

"13th" is a 2016 American documentary film by Ava DuVernay. It is titled after the Thirteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution adopted in 1865, that abolished slavery through-out the United States and ended involuntary servitude except as a punishment of a crime. 

The documentary examines the history of slavery in the United States, the impact of systemic racism on Black and Afican American people and the resulting Civil Rights Movement.

Movie participants may also view a 35 minute  conversation with Opray Winfrey and Ava DuVernay that can also be seen on NETFLIX https://www.netflix.com/title/80169801  that gives an insight on the making of the "13th" documentary film.
