The Southside Commons would like to invite you to the first film in our ongoing film series.
In celebration of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver and Black History Month, Southside Commons will be hosting a viewing of Salute, an award-winning documentary about the iconic moment of political solidarity displayed by three Olympic athletes in the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Salute explores the events surrounding these historic Olympic Games and describes how Australian sprinter Peter Norman and his fellow medal-winners, John Carlos and Tommie Smith, took a daring stand against oppression. We hope you will join us to learn the story behind one of the most significant and touching images of the 20th century.
This month’s film is brought to you by the Northwest Federation of Community Organizations and the Social Justice Fund Northwest.
Please join us Thursday, February 18th at 6:00pm. This is a free community event! Donations will be accepted at the door and refreshments will be served.
The Southside Commons will be hosting a community watch party on the third Thursday of every month.
Please contact Meredith at gro.ocfwn|htiderem#gro.ocfwn|htiderem with any questions. We hope to see you there!
