YWCA Carlisle and Dickinson Law will kick off the first of its monthly film series with a screening of “Selma” Wednesday evening in the law school’s auditorium.
The free movie series features films that focus on the YWCA’s mission of eliminating racism and empowering women and girls. The series will screen a film each month followed by a talk-back session led by community leaders and experts.
Following the screening of “Selma” at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Lewis Katz Hall, 150 S. College St., Vera Cornish and Tameka Hatcher will lead a discussion about the film. Cornish is the owner of Cornish & Associates Inc. and publisher of the “Urban Connection,” and Hatcher is the educational outreach coordinator for the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission.
On the schedule so far for the series are “Loving” on Feb. 13 and “The Red Pill” on March 14. “Loving” centers around the story of interracial couple Richard and Mildred Loving and their Supreme Court fight, and “The Red Pill” is a documentary exploring the “men’s rights” movement.
