6:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Watch on Watson's YouTube channel.
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."
View the film before the panel at a screening on Tuesday, September 22 at 7:00 p.m., or on Wednesday, September 23 at 4:30 p.m. The film can also be viewed on Amazon Prime starting on September 18.
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.
