Today: Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Film Screening: P.S. I Can’t Breathe

Film Screening: P.S. I Can’t Breathe

“P.S. I Can’t Breathe” is a short film that welcomes dialogue around racial inequality, policing, and the Criminal Justice System by focusing on Eric Garners case. We hope viewers will increase their understanding of issues plaguing Black and Brown Communities by witnessing a massive group of protesters unite for the purpose of justice.

This film is a “…raw, uncensored glimpse into the Millions March NYC. Real interviews with the protesters show the depths of hurt and anger in the community, along with their hope for justice and suggestions for solutions to inspire the change many wish to see! P.S. I Can’t Breathe encourages the observer to digest information regarding the #BlackLivesMatter hashtag and understand the youth’s perspective on the topic while taking a deeper look into aftermath…of hope lost and shattered dreams when justice is not equal for everyone.” – Tambay A.
