Brittany Ferrell, star of our film Show Me Democracy, said last week that as we acknowledge history not to forget that so much lays ahead for black Americans, and it is in that spirit that we're celebrating Black Futures Month! Throughout February we'll be offering 15% off all the films in our African American studies collection with promo code BLACKFUTURES.
Show me Democracy chronicles Brittany's two-pronged struggle to advance civil rights through grassroots activism and civic engagement. In an era of unprecedented youth participation, Show Me Democracy is sure to help foster the next generation of change-makers.
