In 2006, under the neon lights of a gay-friendly neighborhood in New York City, a group of African-American lesbians were violently threatened by a man on the street. The women fought back and were later charged with gang assault and attempted murder. The tabloids quickly dubbed them a gang of “Killer Lesbians” and a “Wolf Pack.” Three pleaded guilty to avoid a trial, but the remaining four — Renata, Patreese, Venice and Terrain — maintained their innocence. The award-winning film Out in the Night examines the sensational case and the women’s uphill battle, revealing the role that race, gender identity and sexuality play in our criminal justice system.
This a free, family-friendly event that will feature activities for kids. Following the screening Renata Hill and Terrain Dandridge will appear to participate in an audience discussion and Q&A. Autographed posters will also be available for cash sale.
FREE — first come first serve on the day of the event.
On- and off-campus sponsoring organizations and resources will be tabling before the screening.
