Witness Palestine Film Series: Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine

When: Mon., Oct. 5, 6:45 p.m. 2015

Come travel with an African-American gospel choir as they work alongside members of the Palestinian National Theatre to adapt, rehearse, and then perform a play about Martin Luther King, for Palestinian audiences in the West Bank. Choir members, drawn from devoutly Christian churches, are traveling to the Middle East for the first time. The singers hope to be a voice for change, but are themselves profoundly changed by the experience. A discussion immediately following each screening featuring your questions fielded by a panelist connected with the film's topic.
