In 1795, one man dared to lead an uprising against the people who were enslaving him on the Dutch island colony of Curacao.
On Tuesday at Fordham’s Lincoln Center campus, his story will be told.
Tula, The Revolt, a 2013 feature length movie about those momentous and tragic days, will be shown at a special screening that will be attended by Danny Glover, who stars in the film.
Glover, an actor, director and political activist best known for his roles in films such as The Color Purple, Witness and the Lethal Weapon series, will sit afterward for a discussion about the film.
