Ryan Coogler’s powerful film Fruitvale Station tells the story of the last 24 hours of the life of Oscar Grant, a young African-American man shot to death by a Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer on a subway platform in Oakland, California. Please join us for a screening and conversation after the film about the abiding impact and broad social and historical effects of race and racism.
