6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Join Watson Director Edward Steinfeld for a conversation with Liz Garbus '92, producer and director of All In: The Fight for Democracy, and Stacey Abrams, whose 2018 race for governor in Georgia is the centerpiece of the film.
Students will have the opportunity to engage with Garbus and Abrams about All In, the upcoming election, anti-black racism, and inequality following a special screening of the film, which Variety calls "a powerfully timely and absorbing documentary about voter suppression and the ongoing battle against it."
In anticipation of the 2020 presidential election, All In: The Fight for Democracy examines the often overlooked, yet insidious issue of voter suppression in the United States. The film interweaves personal experiences with current activism and historical insight to expose a problem that has corrupted our democracy from the very beginning. With the perspective and expertise of Stacey Abrams, the former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives, the documentary offers an insider’s look into laws and barriers to voting that most people don’t even know are threats to their basic rights as citizens of the United States.
Cosponsored by the Brown Arts Initiative, the Department of Africana Studies, the Center for the Study of Race and Ethnicity in America, the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice, the Ivy Film Festival, and Brown Votes.
