“Director Raoul Peck envisions the book James Baldwin never finished – a radical narration about race in America, using the writer’s original words. He draws upon James Baldwin’s notes on the lives and assassinations of Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr to explore and bring a fresh and radical perspective to the current racial narrative in America.”

In response to the killings of George Floyd and far too many other Black people at the hands of police officers, SURJ Santa Cruz organized two socially-distanced car caravan protests on June 2 and 5. Strong turnout showcased the depth of community support for ending white silence and showing up for racial justice in the Santa Cruz community. Take a look at some photos from the events and join us next time.
