Woke Up Black Film Screening


Thursday, October 23, 2014 - 1:30pm to 3:30pm


Phillips Hall Room 100


On September 24, the Public Policy Center held a screening and panel discussion of the film "Woke Up Black." It was so well-received that we will hold a second screening on Thursday, Oct. 23 at 6:30 p.m. in 100 Phillips Hall. 


Woke Up Black documents a two-year period in the lives of five black youth ages 16-21, capturing both day-to-day life events such as family gatherings and interactions with the justice system, as well as major milestones such as high school graduations and first days at college. The film focuses on the youths' ideas and opinions in their own words, and underscores the humanity that we all share regardless of race or age.


Following the screening, we will hold a panel discussion about the film with Producer Mary Morten and two of the film's subjects - Morgan Price and Carter Tindell-Hall.


The event is free and open to the public, seats first come, first served.
