Screening and Discussion of The Home Team
The Super Bowl came and went, but the stadium’s next door neighbors are still here. This film shines a light on a subject much more in need of attention than football: The glaring inequity highlighted by a state-of-the-art venue across from a historic neighborhood whose demise we’ve allowed for decades. We — Atlanta — have let these neighborhoods become an eyesore of the city, the birthplace of the Civil Rights movement. This film explores the culture that saw fit to invest hundreds of millions of public dollars in a sports venue while neglecting the community just across the street. We’ve heard a lot about the new stadium. This is the residents’ story.
Join Georgia State Chapter of the American Constitution Society and the Georgia State Chapter of Black American Law Students Association for a screening of the documentary film The Home Team. The screening will start promptly at 5pm and a discussion will follow the screening. For more information on the film, visit thehometeamfilm.com.
