PC’s Magic of Cinema to screen ‘Brother Outsider’

Studium Generale, ʔaʔk̓ʷustəƞáwt̓xʷ House of Learning, PC Longhouse, Studium Generale, the Associated Student Council, and Magic of Cinema host a two-part event starting at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20.

This special film screening and panel discussion are part of the college’s Dream Week that honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., his emphasis on “remaining awake,” and his lessons focused on the “three evils of society: racism, economic exploitation, and militarism.”

The event starts with a screening of the 2003 film “Brother Outsider: The Life of Bayard Rustin,” which follows Rustin’s 60-year career as an activist, organizer and “troublemaker.”

At 5 p.m., a discussion features Nitasha Lewis and Miriame Cherbib, Chris Edwards and Neilu Naini, all members of the Port Angeles Racial Justice Collective. The collective works to understand, unlearn and dismantle racism and the institutions that perpetuate it, hold a safe space for community members and uplift the voices of black, indigenous and people of color.
