    Documentary Screening: Driving While Black: Race, Space and Mobility

    Time:  4:30pm
    “Driving While Black: Race, Space and Mobility in America” explores how the automobile brought mobility and personal freedom to African Americans but also exposed them to discrimination and violence. The film holds an urgent and powerful message for American society today - at once revelatory, deeply troubling, and inspiring as it reveals a story of human courage, creativity, and commitment to change - it provides a crucial window on discrimination, civil rights, and national identity.
