Join us for a special screening of The Hate U Give, a gripping and timely cinematic adaptation of Angie Thomas’ powerful novel. Explore the themes embedded within this critically acclaimed film for an evening of reflection, dialogue and community.
This coming-of-age teen drama stars Starr Carter, a young teen constantly being forced to switch between two worlds: the poor, primarily Black neighbourhood where she lives and the wealthy, mostly white prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these two worlds is shattered when she witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend at the hands of a police officer. Facing pressure from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and decide to stand up for what’s right.
