Tuesday, February 7, 6:45pm
The Grand Cinema, Tacoma, Washington
FREE and open to the public. Donations accepted.
Pre-screening introduction and post-screening Q&A with the filmmaker Michael Honey

LOVE & SOLIDARITY is an exploration of nonviolence and organizing through the life and teachings of Rev. James Lawson. Lawson provided crucial strategic guidance while working with Martin Luther King, Jr., in southern freedom struggles and the Memphis sanitation strike of 1968. Moving to Los Angeles in 1974, Lawson continued his nonviolence organizing in multi-racial community and worker coalitions that have helped to remake the LA labor movement.

Through interviews and historical documents, acclaimed labor and civil rights historian Michael Honey and award-winning filmmaker Errol Webber put Lawson's discourse on nonviolent direct action on the front burner of today's struggles against economic inequality, racism and violence, and for human rights, peace, and economic justice.

Watch & Discuss

There will be a 15 minute film introduction and a 30 minute post film discussion in theater with Michael Honey.

Admission is free and passes are available day-of, first-come first-served. Screening one evening only.

Presented in partnership with Center for the Study of Community and Society at UW Tacoma, UWT Black Student Union, Meaningful Movies Tacoma, and Immanuel Presbyterian Church Tacoma.
