Please join Donita Judge, Associate Executive Director of the Center for Constitutional Rights, as she participates in the Q&A for the Voting Matters film screening with Creatively Speaking film series.
More than 50 years after the Voting Rights Act of 1965, one of the most extensive pieces of Civil Rights legislation, people of color across the United States are still engaged in a battle to protect their right to vote. The documentary Voting Matters follows civil-rights attorney Donita Judge as she helps several voters in Ohio cast ballots even though they were initially turned away, while highlighting how many hoops must be jumped through simply to vote and how cries of voter fraud are exaggerated.
The film screening will take place on the Metrograph online platform, accessible by subscribing as a member of the theater for a $5 fee for one month. Here’s a link to Metrograph's membership page.
Over the course of 23 years, Creatively Speaking has become the leading, curated film series offering a diverse forum that highlights independent film by and about women and people of color. Working outside the mainstream, often with limited resources, the filmmakers represented in the Creatively Speaking Film Series provide a model for working within and around a historically underrepresented system that continues to this day. Their mission is to change the cultural narrative, one image at a time, and to expand audiences for independent film and video artists of color through community screenings, followed by lively and thoughtful discussions about the subject matter, as well as the art and craft of filmmaking.
