Diversity Film Series Free Documentary Films & Community Conversation

Piedmont’s Appreciating Diversity Film Series kicks off its 2019 season of hosting free screenings, speakers and community conversation this fall, with a lineup that continues to celebrate great documentary films and activism.

Piedmont Schedule:
(Ellen Driscoll – Playhouse, 325 Highland Ave, Piedmont)

  • January 27, 2019 – 100 Years: One Woman’s Fight for Justice
  • March 21, 2019 – The Pushouts 

Oakland Schedule:
(The New Parkway Theater, 474 24th St, Oakland)

  • January 24, 2019 – 100 Years: One Woman’s Fight for Justice
  • March 24, 2019 – The Pushouts 

In 1942, Executive Order 9066 forced the incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans for the duration, an act now understood as a massive abuse of civil rights. The film explores this history and its relevance today, in the face of threats of a Muslim registry and imposition of a travel ban.
