“The Uncomfortable Truth” – November 4th, 3 to 5:15 pm
Join us for the film and the Q & A to follow. You may also choose to join us for a special luncheon with Loki before the screening. Both options are available at the ticket link.
In this film, Loki Mulholland, the son of famous Civil Rights Activist, Joan Trumpauer Mulholland, grapples with his familys deep roots in racism as he unearths his familys history and the truth behind their slave-owning past.
Together with Luvaghn Brown, a Freedom Rider, Loki explores, through his very personal history, the United States institutions of racism that continue to haunt our country today.
The Uncomfortable Truth is an unapologetic film that lays bare what we all need to understand about each other with an open and honest dialogue on race and society.
