The Screening Guide is structured to help audiences answer Bryan Stevenson and EJI’s call to engage with the hard truths of our past in order to move forward into a different and better future. The goal of this kind of film engagement is to enable groups to:
*Reflect on America's history of racial inequality, and how this history has shaped our personal understandings of race.
*Identify the false narratives from previous historical eras that have legitimized or sustained unjust policies and practices.
*Use this learning to explore how this history can help reveal the false narratives — often unspoken — that shape our culture, policies, and communities today.
*Develop ideas for confronting the history of racial inequality in America and take meaningful steps in the process of truth and reconciliation.
