Our ADORE (A Dialogue On Race and Ethnicity) group will view and discuss a powerful docudrama, “Marshall,” on Sunday, August 25th in the UU Church Sanctuary. This film depicts the role of the young Thurgood Marshall, who later became the first African American Supreme Court Justice, in his unrelenting mission to free people who were falsely accused based on the color of their skin. Following is a more detailed description of the film: “Marshall is based on the incredible true story of future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall and one of the landmark cases of his life. It follows the young lawyer (Chadwick Boseman) to conservative Connecticut to defend a black chauffeur (Sterling K. Brown) charged with sexual assault and attempted murder of his white socialite employer (Kate Hudson). Muzzled by a segregationist court, Marshall partners with a courageous young Jewish lawyer (Josh Gad), and together they mount the defense in an environment of racism and anti-Semitism.”
A short, 10-minute orientation for newcomers will take place from 11:30-11:40am with the regular meeting beginning at 11:40am and ending at 2:40pm. The meeting will run three hours because the movie, itself, is two hours long and we will discuss it afterwards.
Pizza will be available for $1.50 a piece. Childcare will be available upstairs.
