¡Cine Resistencia! Featuring: A Strike & an Uprising (in Texas)—Preview Screening
Sponsored by Anne Lewis & Red Salmon Arts
A Strike and an Uprising (in Texas) is an experimental documentary based in the telling of two events: the 1938 San Antonio pecan shellers’ strike led by Emma Tenayuca and the 1987 organizing campaign of black workers at Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches. Tied strongly to contemporary events, it ends with the coming down of the Jefferson Davis statue at UT.
*This free community film screening starts at 7pm with light refreshments provided. Seating is limited, so be sure to show up ahead of time to get settled in!**
A sliding scale donation or purchase at Resistencia is suggested to go toward refreshments and support the bookstore.
