Join us for a screening of Let the Fire Burn! (2013) followed by a discussion with director Jason Osder.

This documentary film chronicles the events leading up to and surrounding the May 13, 1985 stand-off and ensuing violence in West Philadelphia between the Black liberation group MOVE and the Philadelphia Police Department. Using archival news coverage and interviews, much of the film’s footage comes from Temple University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center.

This program will be presented via Zoom. On the day of the program, use this link to join: https://temple.zoom.us/j/95425111594
