TRLN is planning a screening of Change the Subject scheduled for January 30, 2020, from 2:00-4:00pm at Carolina Theatre in downtown Durham. The screening of the film will be followed by a panel discussion. To express your interest in attending, please complete the registration form.
Change the Subject shares the story of a group of college students who, from their first days at Dartmouth College, were committed to advancing and promoting the rights and dignity of undocumented peoples. In partnership with staff at Dartmouth, these students – now alumni – produced a film to capture their singular effort at confronting an instance of anti-immigrant sentiment in their library catalog. Their advocacy took them all the way from Baker-Berry Library to the halls of Congress, showing how an instance of campus activism entered the national spotlight, and how a cataloging term became a flashpoint in the immigration debate on Capitol Hill.
The event page will be updated with further details or follow @TRLN_main on Twitter.
