ADVANCED MOVIE SCREENING AND DISCUSSION: KICKS

  • The Grand Lake Theater

We had the pleasure of hosting an advanced movie screening and discussion on the movie KICKS which premiered in theaters on September 16th, 2016. KICKS takes place in the Bay Area’s own Richmond and Oakland, Ca and highlights many issues, such as violence and manhood, that are oftentimes associated with the sneaker culture. We wanted to use our platform to share this movie and discuss its major themes that also transpire in many urban communities nationwide. Our goal is to spark proactive thinking in diminishing the overzealous attitude towards materialism.

We would like to give a special thanks to The Grand Lake Theater for allowing us to use their theater for our screening.

CONVERSATIONS: REJUVENATING THE BLACK COMMUNITY

  • Bentley High School

CONVERSATIONS ON REJUVENATING THE BLACK COMMUNITY WITH THE STUDENTS OF COLOR AT BENTLEY HIGH SCHOOL

We were honored to join the conversation on problems facing the African American community and brainstorm potential solutions to reform them. We met some of the young leaders of Bentley High School and offered our advice on how to navigate through a society that does not always provide support nor respect while maintaining a sense of pride and appreciation of one’s history and culture.
