  • ArchCity Defenders, Inc. ‎Racial Justice Film Series

    June 27, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 6:00 pm

    In 2018, ArchCity Defenders held our first ever Racial Justice Film series (with KDHX) featuring three compelling documentaries: "Marvin Booker was Murdered," "Whose Streets?" and "Major!". Each of the films featured stories that connected with our clients' experiences and our mission of combatting state violence and the criminalization of poverty.

    This summer, our series features films that touch on topics including intersectional identities within the civil rights movement, debtors' prison and the cash bail system, and the histories of two STL neighborhoods, Kinloch and Ferguson. Each screening will be followed by a panel discussion to continue the conversations sparked by each film. All screening events are free and open to the public.

    Follow our Facebook page for more updates and information as we near our event dates.

    July 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 7:00 pm Missouri History Museum, Lee Auditorium

    Free

    Mothers, fathers and caretakers from all walks of life have “The Talk” with their children, but the content varies widely across racial, cultural and gender lines. In the era of Black Lives Matter and #MeToo, these conversations are ever evolving to meet the challenges of life in 2019. Listen to a panel of parents from different backgrounds discuss The Talk they have with their own children, the different forms it takes, and why it’s important for us to understand what other parents are saying. In collaboration with the Missouri History Museum and St. Louis Public Radio.
