Join us for a reception followed by a screening of Red Pill, a new film written and directed by Tonya Pinkins, the 2023 Denzel Washington Endowed Chair in Theatre, and an award-winning actress, singer, author, educator, filmmaker, podcaster, and essayist.
Following the screening, there will be a Q&A with Pinkins and Michelle Prettyman, professor of media and communication at Fordham University and scholar of African American cinema.
On the eve of the 2020 election, six progressives ride into “red country.” Despite the glaring warning signs, they are focused on the triumphant dream of getting the vote out. That dream is quickly slashed, and they find themselves fighting for their lives.
Reception: 6:30 p.m. | Platt Court
Film Screening: 7 p.m. | McNally Amphitheatre
This event is open to alumni and faculty/staff.
