Rogers Free Library and Linden Place Mansion, both located in Bristol, RI, invite the community to the Linden Place gardens this summer for a film series centered on the theme of race and social justice.
The six-film series – which will focus on films exploring issues of race and how it relates to different parts of our society - will take place on select Tuesdays at sundown in the gardens (moved to the ballroom in the case of rain). From films on inequality to the criminal justice system to stories of strength and resilience, each screening features a different and unique perspective.
This series is part of Linden Place’s ongoing programming that focuses on African Americans and the African cultures that have contributed to United States’ history.
The schedule of stirring films and documentaries includes Just Mercy from 2019. Based on the autobiographical book written by Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy tells the story of the world-renowned civil rights defense attorney as he works to free a wrongly condemned death row prisoner. Directed by Destin Daniel Cretton and starring Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Foxx and Brie Larson.
Admission is free and open to the public. Bring your own chair and snacks or enjoy refreshments onsite from local businesses.
