Compelling Film Series

The Racial Equity & Inclusion Film Series is back at the Capitol Theater in Cleveland’s Gordon Square neighborhood starting tomorrow night.

A free showing of “The Hate U Give” kicks off the second annual event at 7 p.m., followed by a discussion of the 2018 film that’s based on a best-selling book.

The series will show three more films, in March, April and May, concluding on May 8 with “Dispatches from Cleveland.” The 2017 documentary looks at the city after the fatal shooting of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by a Cleveland police officer in November 2014.

There is a $5 suggested donation for admission to each of those three films. Post-film discussions will be at XYZ The Tavern, just down the street on Detroit Avenue, which will offer free food and a cash bar.

Caveat for those who didn’t click on the link: Online tickets are not available for “The Hate U Give.” Tickets will be distributed starting at 6 p.m. tomorrow, so you’d be wise to get to the theater early.

I haven’t seen any of the films in this series, but they all sound worthwhile. The March film is Hale County This Morning This Evening and the April film is Let the Fire Burn, which aired on PBS in 2014.
