Afro Eco Film Series

Sister Girl, Deb Torraine hooked me up with some great information regarding a FREE film series going on at Rondo Out-Reach Public Library
“We Shall Not Be Moved”
Saturday, April 17, 2010 at 1:30-3:30
Rondo Out-Reach Public Library
(located on University and Dale
Streets in Saint Paul, Minnesota)
African Americans and other people of color are calling
for more information that reflect ourselves when addressing Climate Justice, Food Justice,
Land Equity and Environmental Justice issues in our communities. Our next film “We Shall
Not Be Moved” addresses land equity issues as it relates to the health and wealth of the
African American community. Since the 1920’s African Americans have lost 98% land share
in the USA.
This premier Minnesota screening of “We Shall Not Be Moved” will be on Saturday, April
17, 2010 at 1:30-3:30 at Rondo Out-Reach Public Library located on University and Dale
Streets in Saint Paul, Minnesota. This exciting documentary film archives the building of the
African American, Tillery Agriculture Community by the USDA, during the 1930’s depression.
For more information about this community click on link below. (Did you know Frogtown had
its on African American Coop back-in-the-day?) Seitu Jones, a local artist, will share his
archive of this very same Frogtown garden co-op before the film!!
