Apr 4 09:00 am Diversity Film Festival Ferrell Commons - Auditorium (FC-7E)
"Modern slavery.” It sounds like a paradox. Hasn’t humanity progressed? Didn’t we leave slavery dead on the battlefields of the American Civil War? Didn’t social reformers like Lincoln and Wilber force legislate against such cruelty over a hundred years ago? So we had thought. But, with over 27 million enslaved people in the world, human trafficking is once again the battlefront of the century.

Apr 4 04:00 pm Stonewalling History: Screaming Queens and a Zirstory of LGBTQ+ Identity Politics Graduate Student Center
EMMY® Award-winning "Screaming Queens" tells the little-known story of the first known act of collective, violent resistance to the social oppression of queer people in the United States — a 1966 riot in San Francisco’s impoverished Tenderloin neighborhood, three years before the famous gay riot at New York’s Stonewall Inn. "Screaming Queens" introduces viewers to street queens, cops and activist civil rights ministers who recall the riot and paint a vivid portrait of the transgender scene in 1960s San Francisco. Integrating the riot’s story into the broader fabric of American life, the documentary connects the event to urban renewal, anti-war activism, civil rights and sexual liberation. With enticing archival footage and period music, this unknown story is dramatically brought back to life.
