POSTPONED:Community Curator: The Poor People’s Campaign of Rochester (RocPPC)

February 8 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


RocPPC is a regional chapter of the national Poor People’s Campaign founded by Rev. Dr. William Barber that focuses on systemic racism, poverty, ecological devastation and militarism. For this screening, RocPPC has chosen a selection of films from the VSW collection that examine the relationship between racism and poverty, and how these issues combine with ecological issues or the war economy.

The Community Curator program invites representatives from social justice-focused community groups in the Rochester region to curate film screenings using VSW’s collection of over 9,000 film and video titles.

The VSW Film Series is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by the ArtWorks program of the National Endowment for the Arts.
