On Thursday, February 20, 2020 at 7:30 PM, at The Garden Theatre (160 Nassau Street, Princeton) Not in Our Town Princeton is hosting the film “Justice on Trial.” In “Justice on Trial,” two civil rights attorneys sue the U.S. Department of Justice for reparations and damages done to African Americans, bringing back time-traveler witnesses, including Harriet Tubman, Medgar Evers, and Emmett Till, to testify. The evidence is then given to a mixed-cultural jury to deliberate.
The film will be followed by a discussion and Q & A with filmmaker Dr. Chad Lawson Cooper, his father retired Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Lubbie Harper, Jr., Connecticut Super Attorney John Gesmonde and Caroline Clarke, Esq.
