Backs Against The Wall: The Howard Thurman Story – by Martin Doblmeier, 2019
This film explores the extraordinary life of Rev. Howard Thurman, a teacher, poet, “mystic” at heart, and proponent of the non-violent struggle for social change. Jesse Jackson, Otis Moss, Jr. and others speak about Thurman’s “spirit” being foundational in their lives in this poignant and powerful portrayal of, as Congressman John Lewis calls him, the “patron saint” of the Civil Rights Movement. Actor Keith David voices Thurman’s words.
Doors open at 6:30 PM.
This event is free and open to the public, no tickets required.
