Friday Night Film

October 4, 2019

The Racial Justice Education Team (RJET) invites members and friends to a screening and discussion of Capturing the Flag on Friday, October 4, at 7pm in the sanctuary.  This documentary tells the story of four friends who travel to Cumberland County, NC--posterchild for voter suppressions in 2016--intent on proving that the big idea of American democracy can be defended by small acts of individual citizens. What they find at the polls serves as both a warning and a call to action for anyone interested in protecting the “one person, one vote” fundamental of our democracy.
