Cincinnati Goddamn Screening benefiting Racial Justice Now

February 19 @ 5:00 pm

$10

SURJ Greater Dayton presents: a screening of Cincinnati Goddamn which is a feature-length documentary about police brutality, anti-black racism, and the power of grassroots activism in Cincinnati, Ohio. From 1995-2001 there were fifteen black men killed by the Cincinnati police. The film focuses on two of those murders, Roger Owensby, Jr and Timothy Thomas. Martin Luther King said that “A riot is the cry of the unheard.” Thomas’s death sparked three days of civil unrest and protests. This poignant and powerful story of injustice is told through news reports, first-person accounts and cinema verité footage of the surviving families’ long-suffering battle for justice. A silent auction will take place before the screening and a Q and A with the directors will immediately follow.

 

All proceeds will benefit Racial Justice Now! http://rjnohio.org Tickets for minimum donation of $10 are on sale at the Neon and by contacting [email protected]
