Movie Night, 6:30 pm, Friday, March 22, MacKenzie Room

March 22, Friday, 6:30 pm Movie Night! Hosts: Connie Carter and Ed Brazee In this 2018 movie, Starr Carter is constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black, neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. The movie is based on the critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller by Angie Thomas and stars Amanda Stenberg as Starr, with Russell Hornsby, Regina Hall, Anthony Mackie and Issa Rae. PG-13 for mature thematic elements, some violent content, drug material and language.
