'From Selma to Stonewall' + Q & A with Rev. Yvette Flunder
Saturday Aug 12 1:00pm in Oakland / East Bay
Please join us on Saturday, August 12th at the City of Refuge UCC in Oakland for a screening of the documentary 'From Selma to Stonewall: Are We There, Yet?" and discussion with LGBTQ and civil rights activist Rev. Yvette Flunder!

The LGBTQ rights movement is often called the new civil rights movement of today. But is that entirely true? Are they similar or fundamentally different? Are the two movements headed toward the same destination? Why aren't we there yet? And why are they fighting in the car along the way?

Two unlikely friends Gil Caldwell (an 80-year-old black, straight retired preacher and civil rights leader) and Marilyn Bennett (a 52-year-old white lesbian activist and author) wanted to find out just what lies at the conflict and the crossroads of these two important American movements.

As we prepare to embark on the Lavender Pen Tour, we hope you will join us for what will be an illuminating discussion on the intersectionalities of these movements in America.

Be advised that the exact start time may change -- but it will still be in the early afternoon of Sat, Aug. 12th.
