16 Bars: Film Screening & Discussion
October 5 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In partnership with Lightyear Entertainment, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights presents the Atlanta premiere of 16 Bars. This free film screening and dialogue will examine incarceration in America and the role of artistic expression as a cathartic rehabilitation tool. After the screening of the film, participants will hear from documentary Resonant Pictures Director Sam Bathrick and Grammy-winning artist-activist Todd “Speech” Thomas as they discuss the film, how they envision art as a form of rehabilitation, and how communities can support formerly incarcerated citizens as they return to ordinary life.
