Special opportunity: Justice On Trial screening and discussion

An image shows the title (Justice On Trial) and time and date (7:30pm on 2/20) of a special screening at Princeton's Garden Theatre

What would happen if…

Next Thursday, 2/20, at 7:30pm will represent a unique opportunity to see the film “Justice On Trial” at the Princeton Garden Theater… and connect with the filmmaker!

Purchase your tickets at the door, or buy them in advance at https://www.princetongardentheatre.org/films/justice-on-trial. (Proceeds from this event will be split equally between the Chad Lawson Cooper production company to support the development of social justice films, and the Princeton Garden Theatre.)

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 screening of the film will be followed by a discussion and Q&A with the filmmaker, Dr. Chad Lawson Cooper, his father retired Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Lubbie Harper, Connecticut Super Attorney John Gesmonde, and NIOT Board member Caroline Clarke, Esq.

Please use the buttons below to help get the word out, write “Justice On Trial, 7:30pm, 2/20” on your calendar, bring a friend, and come on out!

Yours in the struggle,
Not In Our Town Princeton
