On Saturday, April 11th, 2015, 6pm until 9pm, the film "AmeriKKKa Black" will makes it Philadelphia debut at The Rotunda theater, on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania at 4014 Walnut Street.
Written and executive produced by Asa Khalif, AmeriKKKa Black takes a raw and gritty approach at uncovering the pain and fear that men of color face every day of their lives in the United States of America under one of the most serious, enduring, and divisive types of human rights violation: police brutality. The film is a nod and supportive response to the growing current social movements proclaimed in the phrase “#BlackLivesMatter”.
The screening of the film will be proceeded by an opening mixer and introductory topical conversation, and followed by a film-maker interview and open discussion on social issues addressed in the film.
