“Fruitvale Station”

Thursday, August 28, 2014, 7:00 p.m.

MSU Main Library North Conference Room (W449)
Facilitated by Terrion L. Williamson, MSU Department of English

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.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me with questions about this event.
