At the River I Stand
is an award-winning and poignant documentary about mobilization, determination and tragedy during the civil rights movement, focusing on two very eventful months in 1968 that culminate with the success of the unionization of sanitation workers and the tragic death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in Memphis.

effectively and eloquently connects several social justice themes still relevant today. The event is Sept. 3, 7 p.m. at Earth House, 237 N. East St., and admission is $5.
