Arts Calendar: Film in Central Vermont
Film and discussion with Justice for All, Black Lives Matter Vermont, and Central VT Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ). Much of the discrimination that was legal in the Jim Crow era is today illegal when applied to black people but perfectly legal when applied to "criminals." Through subjective choices, people of color have been targeted at significantly higher rates for stops, searches, arrests, prosecution, and harsher sentences. This documentary aims to answer questions and provoke questions on an issue walled-off from the public's scrutiny. Directed by Matthew Pillischer.
