Event Description

Ida B. Wells: A Passion for Justice documents the dramatic life and turbulent times of the pioneering African American journalist, activist, suffragist and anti-lynching crusader of the post-Reconstruction period. Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison reads selections from Wells' memoirs and other writings in this winner of more than 20 film festival awards. 

Join us for a viewing of the film followed by a discussion of Ida B. Wells' work and how it relates to today's issues surrounding discrimination and racial justice. Conversation will focus on how major themes in the life and legacy of Ida B. Wells correspond to Unitarian Universalist principles and the call for faith-based action.

This film showing and discussion is in partnership with the Moonstone Arts Center of Philadelphia, and is part of a larger program commemorating the work of Ida B. Wells. Learn more about other community events, including lectures, roundtable discussions and additional film showings here.
