Wednesday, we continue our Through the Lens series with a poignant film about the devastating impact economic inequality has had on America’s black working class. Utah-based filmmaker Andrew James’s documentary Street Fighting Men follows the lives of three men in Detroit as they struggle to build something lasting for themselves and future generations. James will join us to tell their stories of fighting to find steady ground in a community wracked by crime, violence, and dwindling opportunity.
On Monday, August 21, RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will present a free screening of Street Fighting Men as part of our Through the Lens series. It's at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center and director Andrew James will join us for a Q-and-A immediately following the screening. You can get more information, and invite your friends, through our Facebook event.
