Special Screening – September 12

The East Coast Premiere of the award-winning AMERICA IS STILL THE PLACE, based on the unbelievable true story of Charlie Walker, the black man behind the clean up of one of the biggest oil spills in US history.

In 1971, two oil tankers collided beneath the Golden Gate Bridge, spilling one million barrels of crude oil into the bay. The only thing uglier than the environmental devastation, was the institutional racism that poisoned the town and the clean up effort. Based on true events and the novel, America is Still the Place, by Charlie Walker.

The film features the unforgettable performance of Mike Colter, star of Marvel’s brand new Netflix series, Luke Cage, who will join director Patrick Gilles for a discussion and Q&A after the film.

This event is co-sponsored by the Harlem Community Development Corporation.
