Join us at Busboys and Poets Focus-In! Film Series: Cinema for a Conscious Community for a Screening and Discussion of the film 68.
The film is an exploration of the physical barriers that manifest as symbols of oppression for Black people in Washington DC. This ethnographic film highlights the perspectives from DC community activists, artists, educators, civil servants, business owners, and even some who refer to themselves as "gentrifiers." This film will leave your opinion forever changed about innocuous barriers.
68 features music from The Culture God, Knox, and Alex Tha Lion. The artwork for "68" was done by Telvin Stuart, Arthur Perpall III, and Mikail Wright. The narration for 68 were provided by Morgan Edwards and edited by Marcus Long. "68" was written and directed by Kwame Edwards.

Jawara "Wale" Johnson, co-host of "Unfiltered the Podcast"
