Event Details

Join us for a screening of The Hate U Give, followed by a space for discussion and reflection on significant themes of the movie.  

Observe, analyze and unpack impacts of systemic anti-black racism on people and communities through the streaming of The Hate U Give. Observe the story of a young teen, Star, who is challenged, tried and endures through experiences of discrimination, police brutality and social and systemic racism.  

The Hate U Give is a movie based on the award-winning novel by  Angie Thomas. The movie follows Starr Carter, who is constantly switching between two worlds — the poor, mostly black neighbourhood where she lives and the wealthy, a mostly white prep school that she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is soon shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.
