Beloved Community Cville Presents: I’m Not Racist…Am I?
Community Events | 02/9/2018 | 7:00PM
I’m Not Racist…Am I? is a 90-minute feature documentary about twelve New York City teenagers who spend a year talking about racism (2014). The teens attend five intense workshops and have conversations over the course of the year. The year challenges their relationships with their friends, within their own families, and most of all, within themselves.
Join us after the screening for a discussion led by filmmakers Catherine Wigginton Greene and André Robert Lee.

Beloved Community Cville is offering this free event at The Paramount as the first in a series of multiple screenings & discussions planned throughout Charlottesville. Private screenings are currently being set up throughout the community (schools, churches, libraries, etc) during the 30 days following the Paramount screening.
