Don't Miss "Roadmap to Apartheid" Friday, January 10

See also

Seattle is a city known for its residents' commitment to issues of peace and social justice--and for staying informed on such issues locally, nationally and internationally. One organization that helps keep us informed, while also providing a forum for discussion is The Meaningful Movies Project which regularly presents thought-provoking films on Fridays at the Keystone Congregational United Church of Christ.

This coming Friday, January 10, the feature film will be Roadmap to Apartheid. While offering a historical document of apartheid in South Africa, the movie also looks at the situation for Palestinians in Gaza, the West Bank, and Israel. Many analysts, including South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu and former president Jimmy Carter, have seen parallels between the white minority's treatment of blacks in South Africa and Israeli treatment of Palestinians. In this 2012 documentary, first-time directors Eron Davidson and Ana Nogueira examine those similarities. The discussion afterwards will be facilitated by Amin Odeh, a Palestinian living now in Seattle, who founded the group Voices for Palestine which works to increase Americans' knowledge of the Israeli/Palestinian situation.

This Friday's event is scheduled for 7-9:30 at the Keystone Congregational United Church of Christ, located at 5019 Keystone Place North in Seattle. Admission is free but donations are always welcome. Upcoming events include Freedom Riders, about the 1960s struggle for civil rights, and Tough Guise 2, which looks at stereotypes that lead to male violence.
