Black Lives Matter Film Series: Say Her Name
Friday, August 28, 2020 @ 6:00 pm
Sanctuary United Church of Christ and Hillside Community Church continue their Black Lives Matter film series with an online showing and discussion of the 2018 documentary “Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland.” The HBO film is an investigation into what happened to political activist Sandra Bland, an African-American from Texas who died while in police custody.
Access to the film will be required at home. This film can be viewed on Amazon Prime and YouTube ($3.99). Pre-film remarks will take place on Zoom starting at 6 p.m. Film viewing will begin at 6:15 p.m. (the film is 2 hours long), followed by the discussion at 8:30 pm. Crystal Chandler, leader of Mobilize Medford and a documentary director, will lead the discussion.
The Black Lives Matter films will deconstruct and frame an understanding of the inherent power structures in America and the effects this debilitating system has on communities and people of color.
