  • Out in the Night Film Screening and Discussion

    • Everyone
    • LGBTQA Community

    Leeway Foundation and Bread & Roses Community Fund present Out in the Night, a documentary that tells the story of the “New Jersey 4” - four young African American women who fought back against violent and sexual threats by a man on a New York City street. As a result of their defense, the women are charged and convicted in the courts and media as a “Gang of Killer Lesbians.” The film reveals how race, gender identity and sexuality are used to criminalize these women in the mainstream news and the legal system.

    The film screening will be precede by a trailer for the upcoming documentary FREE CeCe, about CeCe McDonald, a trans African American woman who survived a violent, racist and transphobic attack and served time in a men’s prison in Minnesota. After the screening, stay for a discussion with filmmaker Blair Dorosh-Walther, Patreese Johnson (one of the New Jersey 4), and two members from Hearts on a Wire. The discussion will be moderated by scholar-activist Heath Davis

    About the topic: It is easily observable that love, in every person’s life, is a necessity. People are happiest when in the midst of loving, kind, reciprocating company. Though society puts independence on the pedestal, there is a deeper force that drives us to long to be dependent upon and depended upon by someone else in a loving, trusting manner. Knowing connection to be an unfulfilled essentiality, constantly deferred and delayed due to busy schedules or mental/emotional/physical mishaps, we develop a deep sense of insecurity, thinking “Does he even miss me?” or “Why hasn’t she called?” or “Do they even love me?” We are hungry for wholesomeness, and yearn to be in a perfect relationship, but barely know what that means and where that stems from. Where can we confidently plant our sacred seeds of love and trust? How can they healthily grow? How can we gain a firm conviction in true love and drop our weakening inhibitions towards it?
