  1. Film Discussion
    • Start time: 06:30pm
    • End date: Thursday, April 27th
    • End time: 08:00pm
    • One film, released in 1961, was selected for preservation by the Library of Congress as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" for its depiction of a 1947 military tribunal. The second, best known for its romantic conflict, timed its release in January of 1943 with the Casablanca Conference attended by Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Are the 1940s themes explored in these award-winning classics still relevant today?

      Explore how topics of justice, personal integrity, courage, political upheaval (and yes, romance) are reflected in the artistry of these timeless films, and how those themes resonate today. April 19: First half of Judgement at Nuremberg. April 19: Second half of Judgement at Nuremberg. April 27 Casablanca. This screening/discussion series will be facilitated by Kenneth Murphy and Sam Kelley, members of our Let’s Talk America forum. This event is free to attend and open to the public.
