Southern Culture Movie Series – “Truth Underground”

Thursday, May 17, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

This film series is designed to be an entertaining and critical introduction to the American South, and most films are accompanied by commentary from a topical expert. While intended especially for international students and scholars, the series is open to everyone.

Truth Underground follows three spoken word poets as they harness the power of the word. CJ Suitt confronts racial injustice as a Southern black male. Kamaya Truitt-Martin competes in poetry slams across the country to heal a broken home. Jeremy Berggren employs art and poetry to cope with PTSD and to bear witness to the suffering of veterans. The 19th-century poet John Keats said, “Truth is beauty,” and beauty is harsh.

The movie is FREE and refreshments will be served.
