Let the People Decide

Director: Gavin Guerra

US Premiere | Filmmaker in Attendance

“Stealing elections” and “illegal voting” can sound like words meant to whip southern white voters into a frenzy. To the mid-twentieth century activists who lived the brutal history of voter intimidation and literacy tests, the current voter ID debate recalls a familiar tune. Now, the legal battle over voting rights in North Carolina puts a new generation of activists in all-too-familiar territory—fighting laws specifically enacted to intimidate and disenfranchise African Americans at the polls. 

Join us for a Q&A with filmmaker Gavin Guerra after the screening!
