GPB and Working Films are pleased to partner with the Auburn Avenue Research Library for a free screening of The First Rainbow Coalition.
In 1969, the Chicago Black Panther Party began to form alliances with the Latinx Young Lords Organization and the white southern Young Patriots. Banding together in one of the most segregated cities in post-war America, the Rainbow Coalition changed the face of 1960s Chicago politics and created an organizing model for future activists and politicians.
Filmmaker Ray Santisteban will be joined in conversation following the screening with representatives from Georgia StandUP and the Housing Justice League to discuss themes of community organizing, housing equity, multi-ethnic coalition and community building.
Free to attend, reservation requested.
Parking is also free, directly behind the library. After you park, you must go to the information desk on the first floor to receive your parking pass.
The screening will begin at 6:00 PM, but light refreshments will be served at 5:30 PM.
GPB is pleased to partner with the Jane Austen Society of North America Georgia Region to present a free preview screening of Sanditon at the Toco Hill-Avis G. Williams Library on Saturday, January 11th at 2pm.
Jane Austen was chronically ill with a mysterious disease in early 1817, when she turned her thoughts to a happier subject. She started work on a witty and delightful novel set in a seaside town. She never finished it. Now, noted screenwriter Andrew Davies (Pride and Prejudice) picks up Austen’s plot and takes it in a glorious and satisfying direction.
This bold and lavish adaptation of Jane Austen’s final work stars Rose Williams (Curfew) as Austen’s lively but levelheaded heroine, Charlotte Heywood; Theo James (Divergent) as the humorous, charming (and slightly wild!) Sidney Parker; Anne Reid (Years and Years) as the forthright grande dame of Sanditon, Lady Denham; Kris Marshall (Love Actually) as Sanditon’s compulsively enterprising promoter, Tom Parker; and Crystal Clarke (Ordeal by Innocence) as the mysterious West Indian heiress, Miss Lambe.
This preview screening event is free and open to the public. Sanditon will premiere Sunday, January 12 at 9pm on MASTERPIECE on GPB.
