Film Screening & Panel: Mossville

January 20 @ 5:15 pm 7:00 pm MST

Registration Code: SSEHSL21

Mossville, Louisiana: A once-thriving community founded by formerly enslaved and free people of color, and an economically flourishing safe haven for generations of African American families. Today it’s a breeding ground for petrochemical plants and their toxic black clouds. Many residents are forced from their homes, and those that stay suffer from prolonged exposure to contamination and pollution. Amid this chaos and injustice stands one man who refuses to abandon his family’s land – and his community.

Q&A will follow directly after the screening.

At the University of Utah, we celebrate the educational access and opportunities that Dr. King’s legacy has provided in the United States. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Week (MLK Week) has become a platform to engage students, faculty, staff and community members in critical conversations around contemporary Civil Rights issues and race in America.

This year’s theme is “Good Trouble,” a term often associated with former United States Representative John Lewis.
