JUSTICE ON TRIAL.

February 20 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Not In Our Town Princeton along with the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice will be hosting a special screening of the film Justice on Trial

Two civil rights attorneys sue the U.S. Department of Justice for reparations and damages done to African Americans, while bringing back time-traveler witnesses, including Harriet Tubman, Medgar Evers, and Emmett Till, to testify. The evidence is then given to a mixed-cultural jury to deliberate. The film stars Dorien Wilson, Todd Bridges, Alicia Robinson Cooper, Chad Lawson Cooper and David Arquilla.

The film will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with filmmaker Dr. Chad Lawson Cooper and his father, Justice Lubbie Harper, Jr, and Connecticut Super Attorney John Gesmonde.

Not in Our Town Princeton, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is an interracial, interfaith social action group united to advance the cause of racial justice.
The Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice is a non-profit community activist center, educational enclave, & safe-space for our LGBTQIA kids, intersectional families, & all marginalized people, connecting our disparate communities, both locally & nationally.
BRCSJ HQ is located physically on 21 Wiggins St. in Princeton, NJ, & virtually at www.rustincenter.org.
