The Marjorie Luke Theatre, know as ‘The People’s Theatre,’ is a perfect venue to present this screening, as it represents the power of people finding their voice and speaking the truth, something that happens regularly onstage at The Luke,” said Board President Rod Lathim. “This potent, timely film is important for all audiences to see, as much of history seems to be repeating itself. I encourage people to join us for an experience they will long remember.”
