"THE COLOR OF LAW" BY RICHARD ROTHSTEIN
THURSDAY, JANUARY 10, 2019
7:15 - 9:00 PM
Princeton Public Library
65 Witherspoon St, Princeton, NJ 08542

A masterful explication of the single most vexing problem facing black America: the concentration of the poor and middle class into segregated neighborhoods. Rothstein documents the deep historical roots and the continuing practices in law and social custom that maintain a profoundly un-American system holding down the nation's most disadvantaged citizens.
--Thomas B. Edsall, author of The Age of Austerity

Film Screening / Discussion: "Free CeCe"
Tuesday, February 19

6:30pm
Princeton Public Library
65 Witherspoon St, Princeton, NJ 08542

On an outing with friends, CeCe, a transgender woman of color, was brutally attacked. As she tried to defend herself, a man was killed, and CeCe was arrested for murder. After a coercive interrogation, CeCe was incarcerated in a men's prison in Minnesota. Documentarian Jac Gares pushed past the everyday narratives of victimhood surrounding the lives of transgender people, to spotlight the way CeCe and other trans people are leading a growing movement fighting for the rights of transgender people everywhere. CeCe's powerful story highlights the groundswell of voices questioning the prison industrial complex and calling for its disassembly. 

Sponsored by Princeton Public Library, the Bayard Rustin Center for Social Justice
and the Campaign to End the New Jim Crow-Greater Trenton Chapter
