2018 LHAAFF 3 - SOCIAL JUSTICE OR SOCIAL JUST-US?
63 Boycott   Dir. Rachel Dickson   29 mins
In 1963, 250,000 students boycotted the Chicago Public Schools to protest racial segregation. Unseen 16mm footage of the boycott is combined with insights from the original participants and present-day protesters against school closings. 63 Boycott connects the forgotten story of one of the largest northern civil rights demonstrations to contemporary issues around race, education, and youth activism.

Black Stains   Dir. Tiffany Rhynard    13 mins
Black Stains addresses the systemic pattern of racial profiling by the police. Inspired by the personal experiences of choreographer Trent D. Williams, Jr., the film illustrates the reality of being black in the USA. Through interviews with men of varying ages and robust athletic dancing, the film persistently asks the question: why do we not see black men as human? Filmmaker in attendance

Blueprint for Bronzeville   Dir. Tristan Hanson   41 mins
When the City of Chicago decides that its legendary African-American neighborhood Bronzeville will be the host community for a doomed Olympics Bid, housing activists swing into action. But with an international spotlight upon them, can they get a real commitment to affordable homeownership from City Hall?

White Knuckle   Dir. Xavier Coleman   22 mins
White Knuckle opens on newly gentrified Brooklyn in the midst of a series of brutal murders. Jay and her brother Rich have recently relocated to a brownstone across the street from the neighborhood oldest resident, Ms Horne. Raised in a predominantly white, wealthy suburb, the twins have come back to their birth city seeking insight into their Black cultural identity. What they learn will change the face of the neighborhood. Filmmaker in attendance.
