11/20 “Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine”—Film and Discussion

Sunday, November 20, 1:00pm – 3:30pm, Fahs Chapel

An American gospel choir travels to Palestine to perform with the Palestinian National Theatre in a touring play about Martin Luther King Jr. “Al Helm: Martin Luther King in Palestine” reveals the reality of life in Palestine under Israeli military occupation as seen through the eyes of Black Americans. It is an inspiring film exploring parallels between African American and Palestinian freedom struggles and the power of the performing arts to promote nonviolent social justice movements.Watch the trailer here.
