Arc of Justice Film Screening
RedLine
6 p.m. Monday, free

Start the week off with an inspirational film, Arc of Justice, which chronicles the rise, fall and rebirth of the largest black-owned land holding in the country. Learn how the land in southwest Georgia empowered a community, and how discriminating practices and Mother Nature led to its demise — before it was returned to its owners in 2014 after a class-action lawsuit. A discussion will follow the screening.
