MLK Weekend Zoom Hangout and Film Discussion

MLK Weekend Zoom Hangout and Film Discussion

You asked for it and we have risen to the challenge! Meet with your Café friends each month to share and learn from one another.

In honor of MLK Day, Stone Soup Café is hosting a Pick-Your-Own Anti-Racism Film Fest!

MLK Day is an opportunity for deep reflection and personal engagement around race and racism. It's a federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr., who was born in Georgia on January 15, 1929, and was assassinated in 1968 at the age of 39. Let's continue to learn from his legacy.

Poke through our fantastic list of anti-racism flicks and commit to watching at least one before Sunday evening. Once you've watched a film, let's get together virtually on Sunday night (January 17th), hang out with your favorite Stone Soup folks, and share about the films we watched!

OUR MOVIE PICKS:

  1. For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/When the Rainbow Is Enuf (1982)
  2. Selma (2014)
  3. 13th (2016)
  4. Kiki (2017)
  5. King In The Wilderness (2018)
  6. John Lewis: Good Trouble (2020)
  7. Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations - Where Do We Go From Here? (2020)

Will you join together with Stone Soup Café and make time to watch one film? (Or two? Or three!?) We can't wait to see you (virtually) on Sunday night and share about the films we watched!
