The Green Space has posted a video of a discussion about being black in the United States and France that is timely in light of the recent attacks in Paris. On October 27, The Greene Space hosted a special screening of “Les Marches de la Liberté” (Steps to Liberty), an award-winning documentary about the fight against racism in France and the United States.
After the screening, The Green Space convened a panel for a discussion on the film, as well as a broader conversation on race, policing, the Black Lives Matter movement and more. WNYC reporter Arun Venugopal hosted the discussion with the filmmaker Rokhaya Diallo, educator Dr. Crystal Fleming, writer Mychal Denzel Smith and activist Brittany Ferrell.
