Join for a screening of A Reckoning in Boston, an award-winning documentary released last month exploring the history of racism right in our backyard. This documentary was birthed when a White filmmaker began documenting the journey of low-income, adult students of color with the Clemente Course, only to find that, through this experience, he was getting his own education. A collaboration was then formed between the filmmaker and two students of color to produce the film.


The film producers are hosting a virtual screening February 20 at 5pm. Following the screening there will be a panel discussion with Kafi Dixon from the Common Good Cooperatives live at Second Church in Dorchester, moderated by Pastor Valerie Copeland. They will unpack the work that has taken place since the film was produced, the role of spirituality and faith in the work of justice, and how people can join into her ongoing work to create environments of health for lower resourced women of color.


UniteBoston will be screening this film and panel discussion at Second Church in Dorchester, in the neighborhood where much of the film took place. At this screening, we will require mask wearing and physical distancing to keep everyone safe. We will close with a time of reflection and prayer. The screening will be provided for free, and all donations will go to supporting The Common Good Coop, the organization featured in the film which creates environments of health for lower resourced women of color. This is a valuable opportunity to learn about the unsung heroes of our day during Black History Month. Please plan to join us and help to spread the word!
