S.T.A.R. Film Discussion Series (Racial Equity/Social Justice)
Join student leaders from the YVC Stand Together Against Racim youth initiaitve to discuss the film The Hate U Give.
"The Hate U Give is based on Angie Thomas' award-winning book about Starr Carter, a black teen who witnesses the fatal police shooting of a close friend. Like the acclaimed novel, the movie deals frankly and powerfully with race and racism. It also addresses the tension between the police and the communities they're supposed to serve and protect and the differences between teens growing up in predominantly African American neighborhoods and those from affluent white neighborhoods. [Hopefully viewers will] appreciate the movie's messages about standing up for what you believe in, being proud of who you are, and communicating honestly with your parents and friends." -Common Sense Media
