Seattle University's Campus Ministry, Office of Multicultural Affairs, Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture, Muslim Student Association and the International Student Center present and discuss the award-winning film by Sharat Raju & Valerie Kaur: Divided We Fall. See more information below:
Join one of multiple screening opportunies for the award-winning film: Divided We Fall, followed by an evening panel & conversation. This important movie documents the hate crimes, fear and ultimately the need for revolutionary love in the wake of 9/11. In an election season tinged with fear and continued crimes of hate and racism - we provide an opportunity to look at our past in order to choose our collective response today. Valarie Kaur * was a 20-year-old college student when she set out across America in the aftermath of 9/11 to document hate violence against her community. From the still-shocked streets of Ground Zero to the desert towns of the American west, her epic journey confronts the forces unleashed in a time of national crisis–racism and religion, fear and forgiveness–until she finds the heart of America: halfway around the world.
