Weekly Film Series Discussion
Wednesday | 7Pm | june 9 - june 30
We are planning a 4 week film series for the month of June that will help us to continue the converstaions happening on Sunday mornings. The 'Table of Reconciliation' series this month is a time for NBUC to step up and step into the conversation around racism in our society and systems, and to see where we can be better allies with our black brothers and sisters in Christ.
The series is called "When They See Us", and is based on a true story of 5 young boys from Harlem in 1989 who were falsly accused, and then prosecuted, on charges related to a brutal attack in Central Park. It explores the events of the case, as well as the experience of the 5 black male suspects and their famillies. This series is a great opportunity to engage in important conversations and grow a deeper understanding of what the black community has faced and still continues to face today.
