Movie Night! 7PM on July 02nd, 2022

On Saturday Night, July 2nd, 2022, starting at 7PM, we are screening Leveling Lincoln as a part of our Juneteenth Jubilee celebration. The grounds of Lincoln Park once held Lincoln Elementary School which was shut down by the court for being a racially segregated school. This was done as opposed to desegregating or equitably resourcing the school, and was a loss to our community. Join us to learn the history of our community as we celebrate our freedom from bondage and learn why the fight for equity continues.
