And, ultimately, by confrotnig the deeper connections between the lives and assassination of Medgar Evers, Malxom X and Martin Luther King, Jr., Baldwin and Peck have produced a work that challgnes the very defintion of what America stands for.  Film screeninga and discussion on October 10, 2017  from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm in Taylor Auditorium McCool Hall.
