Free Film Screening: Wilson High School Equity and Diversity Film Series Presents 14: Dred Scott, Wong Kim Ark & Vanessa Lopez, Friday, October 16, 6:30 pm Wilson Auditorium
Please join us for a free screening of this documentary exploring who has the right to be an American citizen. 14 examines the citizenship clause of the 14th Amendment through compelling personal stories of undocumented youth and expertly-told history. Under the Fourteenth Amendment, “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”
Following the film the local film makers from Graham Street Productions will be present along with a courageous panel of youth who will share their stories and experiences with the very issues that the film 14 raises.
Support our clubs! Concessions will be sold prior to the show.
