The RAM Program is pleased to present this award-winning film to the entire FSC community.“Dispatches from Cleveland” has lessons for us all and for the future of American society. It closely examines the early 21st century, rust-belt city of Cleveland Ohio, one of the most racially-divided cities in America.
Beginning with the 2014 police killing of 12-year old Tamir Rice, the film weaves together issues of social justice, poverty, race, criminal justice, community policing, urban revitalization v gentrification, bias-based violence against the LGBT community, voting rights, political organizing, and much more.
