            Mount Pleasant: The Roots of a Rebellion!


The Fire this Time – One of the stories by young directors  from Martha’s Table who interview older activists and document events surrounding the uprising in Washington, DC that took place in 1968 after the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr.

Sparked by a 1991 incident in Adams Morgan in which DC police shoot and severely wound Daniel Gomez, angry community members take to the streets against police brutality.  The mayor of DC cracks down on the rebellion by putting the area under a general curfew.

Join us, be part of the movement for democracy, equality & justice on J20 & beyond!

A total of 30 minutes of video showing will be follow by dialogue. The video series is open to the public. There are no fees, but donations are welcomed!
