Fiction To Film - The Hate U Give

Join us to view the critically-acclaimed film, "The Hate U Give", that was adapted from a book, written by Angie Thomas bearing the same name. Then afterward we will discuss the film, the book and key issues that the book and the movie illustrate. Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds, her poor predominately African American urban neighborhood where she lives and the suburban upper middle class that is in a predominately Caucasian neighborhood where she attends prep school. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood friend at the hands of a Caucasian police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what's right.
