The uplifting documentary Mountains That Take Wing... captures a decade-long conversation between two radical civil rights activists: renowned scholar, professor, and writer Angela Davis and Nobel Peace Prize–nominated grassroots organizer Yuri Kochiyama. As the pair discuss personal histories, shared experiences, and the influences that shaped them, a unique portrait of female power and dedication emerges. (video, 98 mins.)




She hid, she came out, she was broken.

After living undercover in high school, hostile confrontations with urban males and feeling broken due to domestic violence, Huskey finds a way to connect her broken pieces.



A film short that intimately examines mental health.  Discussion following the screening with filmmaker Vanessa Blake and mental health advocate William Michael Barbee.
