Upcoming POV Community Screenings

Betting the farm against Robert Mugabe. How far would you go?

Mugabe and the White African is a film as inspiring as it is harrowing, which makes it an ideal film for community discussion and reflection. In the weeks leading up to the PBS broadcast on July 26, 2011, partners across the country will be hosting screening events and engaging in important conversations about land reform policy and addressing historical race-based injustices. Interested in joining the conversation? Check out a few of the events planned below or ask us how you can host your own screening of the film.
