    Documentary Conversations: Stranger / Sister

    Documentary Conversations: Stranger / Sister

    How can we move beyond distrust and divisions towards understanding and solidarity? What can we learn from women of different faiths who have united against hate?  How do we really work to eliminate hate in our communities?  JCo-Leaders of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom, Atiya Aftab and Sheryl Olitzky joined filmmakers and a panel of leading changemakers for a live conversation. 
    Stranger/Sister is the story of two ordinary women, one Muslim and one Jewish, who dare to believe they can join hands to stop the wave of hate. Overcoming a history of distrust between their two religions, they build a movement that turns strangers into sisters, challenging our assumptions about how to fight hate. The Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom is building a powerful network of hope in a time of division, chaos and hate.

    Documentary Conversations - Trapped: Cash Bail in America

    Trapped: Cash Bail in America is a compelling new film that takes a close look at the controversial cash bail system in the United States, the people adversely affected by its implementation, and the ongoing grassroots efforts to combat its negative consequences and to reform the system. 

    Join moderator, Topeka K. Sam, filmmaker, Chris Jenkins, and a leading panel of social justice change makers for a conversation on the economic and racial inequalities of the cash bail system, emerging reform efforts, the opposition posed by the bail industry and how the 2020 election will shape the future of the American criminal-legal system. 

    Trapped: Cash Bail in America highlights the complex and multifaceted ways in which cash bail fundamentally punishes individuals, upends families, and destabilizes minority communities; all without a guilty verdict.

    Documentary Conversations: Recy Taylor

    Documentary Conversations: Recy Taylor

    In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month, Odyssey Impact and the NAACP Youth & College Division held a conversation on the legacy of Recy Taylor, the disproportionate discrimination faced by survivors of color and why it is important to be a vocal ally against racism and sexual assault.

    The Rape of Recy Taylor highlights the legacy of physical abuse inflicted upon Black women by examining the story of Recy Taylor who, in 1944, bravely identified her White rapists in racially segregated Alabama. Since 2018, the film has educated the public about sexual violence against women and the historical trauma faced by Black women in the Jim Crow South. Please join us as we celebrate the conclusion of the social impact campaign for The Rape of Recy Taylor documentary film. 

    Co-presented by Odyssey Impact and the NAACP Youth & College Division
